Most of Anthony Wilson's recordings to date tend to put the focus on his writing, so this workout by the guitarist in a trio is a welcome change of pace. Wilson has a melodic and boppish style with an attractive tone. He interacts with two fellow citizens of Los Angeles: organist Joe Bagg and drummer Mark Feber. Wilson contributes three originals and also plays songs by Bagg, Kenny Burrell, the Beatles, Frank Loesser, and Duke Ellington ("Prelude to a Kiss"). Overall this is a fine straight-ahead jazz date by an underrated but talented guitarist.

I got this CD because I wanted to support my mentors. I knew it would be good, but I had no idea it would kill so much. They OOZE originality! Anthony rivals any guitar player in this style, Joe has impeccible time and taste, and Mark is going to be sooooo big sometime soon. This CD is amazing. I recommend buying it NOW!
