Vladimir Bogdanov, Chris Woodstra, Stephen Thomas Erlewine 2002 "On this advanced hard bop date, the music is strictly straight-ahead without any Latin rhythms. .. Other highlights include the moody "Streets Of Desire" (on which Sandoval plays piano), the racehorse tempo of "Real McBop" (which has an impossible but impeccably played melody chorus) and Arturo's humorous use of the plunger mule on "It Never Gets Old." All in all, this is one of Arturo Sandoval's finest recordings to date.
