All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
For his fifth album as a leader not counting the many he recorded as part of the Joe Zawinul Syndicate and as a member of Grover Washington, Jr.'s backing band, six-string bassist Gerald Veasley pushes the smooth jazz envelope a bit. Those who like their grooves gentle and their textures lush will still find plenty to like here -- the rich strings on his cover of Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do," for instance, or the sweet and lovely "Goodnight Moon," written in honor of Washington.

The massed horns of "Kickin' 22 Express," the driving mid-tempo funk of his arrangement of the Ramsey Lewis classic "The In Crowd," the snaky and virtuosic unison lines on "You Asked for It" -- all of these point to someone who is not ultimately satisfied with just creating pleasantly swinging background music. More power to him.

    Slamming jazz CD

    This is a outstanding CD. It is one of the best smooth jazz CD that I have listen in years. It is about time somebody did something different with this smooth jazz sound...I was getting very bored. Mr. Veasley, Thanks for opening the channels and letting groove breast roam!
