"Backed by a tasteful rhythm section, a cellist and a violinist, Jones unleashes a series of smouldering, soulful horn readings that are Zen-like, minimalist perfection. His tone is heartbreakingly beautiful, and his original compositions are of a piece with his classic material. This is a jazz treasure."
"The gracefulness of the arrangements contributes in a profound way to the success of this homogeneous and balanced CD, rendering justice to a musician who has been able to give New Orleans music a flair of modernity."
"With a new romantic CD, Leroy Jones and his trumpet are in tune like never before."
"His trumpet sings with gorgeous flawlessness above the enriching string arrangements."
"Jones follows through on every single note of this outstanding performance, phrasing everything perfectly against the strings."
"This recording ranks up there with Charlie Parker with Strings and Stan Getz's Focus. If this were 40 years ago, it might make Leroy Jones a star, but now it more than justifies his excellent reputation."
