Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide

Only "Boderick" sticks out as minor, and the fact that the players only devote two minutes to this parlor-piano piece seems to indicate they felt the same way. Powell, Chambers, and Taylor make amends for this on the eight-minute "Coming Up," a medium-tempo piece with idiosyncratic piano lines and a thumping beat the bonus cut includes a shorter version of the composition.
