“Yes, this is the real deal... The collective interaction and joy is evident in all the tracks. Phil leads, but allows for ample room for everyone to expand and delve deep into the solid grooves. He does not hide his musical voice in the name of empty stylistic authenticity, but combines the best of both worlds into a cohesive project that will definitely please listeners on both sides of the Equator”

—Jovino Santos Neto, Brazilian pianist, composer, author

“...a recording that showcases jazz trio playing at it's finest. From the start it's clear that a) this is a group that has worked steadily together and is tight as a glove, b) Phil DeGreg...has grown into a first-rate world class jazz pianist, and c) fresh arrangements can still be brought to tried and true jazz standards...Phil is nimble, solid, and inventive...this album is a start-to-finish keeper.”

—Mike Metheny, Kansas City Jazz Ambassadors Magazine
