All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Like many artists who lead dates on Origin, Chad McCullough makes his recording debut for the label, joined by veterans like saxophonists Mark Taylor and Geof Bradfield, pianist Bill Anschell (whose career has flourished since relocating to the Pacific Northwest), bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop. McCullough's rich re-harmonized treatment of the Beatles' "Blackbird" barely touches on the melody before it progresses well beyond its familiar melody, showcasing a pair of flighty soprano sax solos (presumably one by each reed player, though it isn't mentioned in the liner notes) and the leader's spirited fl├╝gelhorn.

McCullough's rich re-harmonized treatment of the Beatles' "Blackbird" barely touches on the melody before it progresses well beyond its familiar melody, showcasing a pair of flighty soprano sax solos (presumably one by each reed player, though it isn't mentioned in the liner notes) and the leader's spirited fl├╝gelhorn.

Recommended.
