All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Rachel Z, a talented young keyboardist, sticks to acoustic piano and varies the personnel and instrumentation from track-to-track on this interesting set. In addition to a woodwind section, such players as violinist Regina Carter, tenor saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Charnett Moffett and drummers Terri Lyne Carrington and Cindy Blackman are among the supporting cast.

Rachel's ten originals which are dedicated to various women ranging from her mother and a 17th-century painter to Billie Holiday and Joni Mitchell cover a lot of moods with the emphasis on relaxed and thoughtful pieces.
