Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Both, the background and the solos reflect the dazzling virtuosity and consummate musicianship of these guys. And no amount of verbal explanation in a set of liner notes can prepare you for the thrill and challenge of "A Short History", which, despite its title, demands, deserves and richly rewards long and loving attentive listening. - Dan Warburton
