Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars stating "In addition to both melodic and advanced jazz, Burton incorporates elements of country, rock, pop and even classical music on this fairly rare LP... the music is full of logical surprises that foreshadow the eclectic nature of much of '80s and '90s jazz".[2]
