All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The original LP using the same title only had five selections, but this CD contains 13, with the added eight from the same sessions having first been released on the double-LP Circling In.

    Exceptional in every aspect

    This album is simply phenomenal, equal and better than many of the great jazz and bop albums. Corea's piano skills are incomparable, and the bassist and drummer are equally virtuostic. It's not as hard core as some bop can be, making it still a very mind-probing listening, but much more endurable. The improvisations on this album are so good, they could easily have been written and composed. I definitely reccomend this album to anyone interested in jazz, be-bop, or cool jazz.
