All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Dave Grusin's tribute to Henry Mancini starts out quite strong, with a few fine examples of Grusin's piano playing particularly "Peter Gunn" and "Mr. Lucky". Unfortunately, as the set progresses, the music gets more and more routine and closer to easy listening. Grusin is joined by bassist John Patitucci and drummer Harvey Mason, singer Diana Krall does fine on two lazy ballads, a horn section including trombonist Andy Martin is heard on two songs, and the obscure harmonica player Tollak Ollestad sounding like Toots Thielemans has a pair of appearances. The use of overdubbed strings on some numbers weighs down the set, and what could have been something special ends up ...

    A unique approach to Mancini

    For twenty-five years I have been intrigued with the originality and vitality of Dave Grusin. He is not afraid to try new approaches, and the interpretations he gives to Henry Mancini's music points that out once again. With excellent musicians to assist him (including Diana Krall on two tracks)Dave Grusin has maintained his ultra high standard that we've come to admire and expect from him. The only reason I didn't give him five stars is that I think Grusin will be remembered more for his own music, rather than interpreting someone else's.
