5 STARS DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE (December 2015)
Harrell’s handling of textures and structure is a balm throughout the album. Each one of these pieces, no matter how varied the contents, moves with inexorable rightness from section to section, always with something new to catch the ear. Despite the broad palette and far-reaching rhythmic variety, Harrell has a jazzman’s understanding of grooves—the habanera of Ravel’s “Voices” is de rigueur, with the added punch of the stop-time section that drives Harrell’s solo. This is a jazz record. An uncommonly good one. —Jon Garelick (Downbeat Magazine)
