“Eric Wyatt is Sonny Rollins God son his dad was a tenor player an one of Sonny,s boyhood friends an Eric has clearly attended to his godfather in matters of phrase building an articulation while still developing his own sound.Fittingly the two Anderson originals that feature Wyatt,s horn are closest to the feeling of Rollins working band--Bob Blumenthal”
“Clifton fires it up pausing for the sunrise then on about the excitement of the tune. Warren Wolf,s vibes carry a high-octane tone, passing the lead to tenorist Eric Wyatt finding new paths. All this working alongside the leader and Vega,s piano Essiet,s bass an Jeff Tain Watts drum work. This is why Tain waited around that day all as one for a man Sonny Rollins called Nishi.”

“Whether it was Eric Wyatts outstanding tenor solo,s or Stephen Scotts articulate an speedy piano displays or the tight swingin Steve Williams led rhythm section each member of the group was able to shine. The pretty melody was brought out further through Mr Wyatts sax playin in harmony with the trombone though some of the passages. The tenor solo was a standout with Mr Wyatt,s improvising but playin near enough the melody to make his voice easily accesable..
