Kenny Barron: piano
Russell Malone: guitar
Rufus Reid: bass

“Who knew there would ever be an album that could stand in for Ben Webster’s Soulville? But here it is: svelte, warm, spirited, witty, passionate, swinging, easygoing, tender, elegant — the epitome of the tenor saxophone as the spirit of romance.” — DOWNBEAT *****

“Wess has refined his artistry to the point that no note is superficial, every inflection has meaning, and every improvisation is lucid and fresh sounding … Every note has its proper place, purpose, and effect, right down to the last cavernous few that conclude both the track and this priceless recording.” — JAZZTIMES
