Rock-solid work from One For All – easily one of the greatest straight jazz combos going, thanks to some tremendous tenor work from Eric Alexander, sweet piano work from David Hazeltine, and snapping rhythms from drummer Joe Farnsworth! Other group members are great too – and the sextet features Jim Rotondi on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, and John Webber on bass – all working here at the height of their powers, and also coming across with a bit more sharpness and soul than even other recent sessions on the Japanese Venus
label. Arrangements are by all members of the group – and the tunes are long, and roll out beautifully with a solidly soulful feel – no surprise, given that most of them are covers of classic soul tunes from the 70s. Tracks include a great remake of "Golden Lady", plus "What's Going On", "How Sweet It Is", "Let's Stay Together", "Reasons", "For The Love Of You", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".
