TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the January 2008 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
Dexter Gordon is joined by Donald Byrd, Kenny Drew, Niels-Henning Orsted and Art Taylor for this set of three delicious tunes. The album’s centerpieces are two extended compositions, Donald Byrd’s “Tanya” and Kenny Drew’s “Coppin’ The Haven”.
“Cisco Music’s vinyl reissue sounds intensely immediate, natural, and palpably “there.” Taylor’s drums are upfront and relentlessly insistent; Gordon’s sax has a wispy, throaty, reverb-encased sound; Pedersen’s bass lays deep, earthy, yet elastic roots; Drew’s piano is solid yet impressionistic, and Byrd’s trumpet is all spit-polished, warm brass. Hands-down, one of the audiophile label’s finest efforts.” – Wayne Garcia, TAS January 2008
