Press Quotes

Everything else about this release is picture perfect. Adams is in his usual fine form and urged to go a little harder on originals like 'Patrice' and the hazy ballad 'Civilization and Its Discontents' by the flame fanning push of pianist Banks and his crackling trio.

     —Robert Ham, Paste

Forever known as 'The Knife,' the intense hard-bop baritone saxophonist with a deep abiding love of R&B as a session man (to say nothing of his ax battles with John Coltrane and trumpeters Lee Morgan and Donald Byrd) truly cut and slashed his way through

     —Ad Amorosi, Flood Magazine
