All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Finnish multi-reed player Antti Sarpila has developed a strong following within a few short years following his 2001 debut CD as a leader. Equally talented on tenor sax, clarinet, and soprano sax, Sarpila gives this set a truly international flavor, with Italian pianist Rossano Sportiello, Australian bassist Nicki Parrott, and American drummer Ed Metz, Jr..

The "I Got Rhythm"-derived "Lesterity" is an obvious salute to Lester Young and would be perfect for any jam session.

The "I Got Rhythm"-derived "Lesterity" is an obvious salute to Lester Young and would be perfect for any jam session. He revisits the long forgotten "Whispers in the Dark" delving in playful exchanges with Sportiello with Metz whispering with his brushwork. His engaging "'Deed I Do" showcases Parrott playing both pizzicato and arco solos. Sarpila's upbeat "Swing à la Chopin" is based on one of Fryderyk Chopin's best-loved waltzes. Fans of mainstream jazz will be delighted with this enjoyable CD.
