The emphasis on this release is on R&B-inflected combo jazz ranging from the soft (but not sappy) sound of Doggett's ethereal organ on "Misty Moon" and "Autumn Dreams" to the straightahead swing of "Bone Tones" and "The Song Is Ended." Of course, this wouldn't be a complete smorgasbord without a touch of the exotic, supplied on "Passion Flower" and "Chelsea Bridge." As always, there's plenty of grits 'n' gravy saxophone ("Tailor Made," "Smooche"), great guitar (isn't that Bill Jennings?) showcased on "The Kid from Franklin St.," and even some real soulful flute playing on "Flying Home" and "How Could You." ~ Myles Boisen, Roots & Rhythm Newsletter, Rovi
