Down Beat (5/98, p.64) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...a spare elegance permeates the recording....each cut...attains its mark with graceful precision..."
Personnel: Ron Carter (bass); Stephen Scott (piano); Lewis Nash (drums); Steve Kroon (percussion).
For this quartet set, veteran bassist Ron Carter is joined by pianist Stephen Scott, drummer Lewis Nash, and percussionist Steve Kroon. As is usual on Carter's records, he is the main soloist on many of the songs though Scott also has plenty of good spots. Recorded originally for the Japanese market, this set features the quartet jamming on four standards and three melodic Carter pieces, with all of the musicians playing quite well. Highlights include "You and the Night and the Music," "Blues for D.P.," and "Mr. Bow-Tie." ~ Scott Yanow
