Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars and states "His light touch and perfect taste are very much present along with a steady stream of purposeful single-note lines that are full of surprising twists... this recommended set (a definitive Wynton Kelly release) showcases magical trio performances".[2] The All About Jazz Review by David Rickert said "Kelly was never in better form than on this album. A great piano trio date".[3]
