The success of this should not be a surprise to those who have followed Brookmeyer’s development. He has been performing with a high level of musicianship for several years. His work with Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, and now with Jimmy Giuffre has been of consistently meaningful quality. Joined here by two enlightened guitarists, he has created a moving, appealing album.” (Don Gold)
