Fiona's Comments

Wonderful album. Surprisingly lyrical for the unusual combo of trombone, organ, and drums. Much more than just a funk groove blowing session; nuanced tunes with delicacy and thoughtfulness. Rollins mixes up the music themes without sacrificing cohesion. Still not sure how he did it. An album that shatters expectations, engages, and remains thoroughly listenable. Enjoy!
