Pianist Elias’s confident delivery and light touch are captured at their best, morphing lush impressionism into a late-night blues, adding eastern-accented inflections to a Latin cruise and delivering a valedictory tribute to the late Michael Brecker – saxophonist Joe Lovano is a sensitive guest.

As sensitive, small-group jazz goes, this is close to definitive.
Phil Johnson, Independent on Sunday
The thing that sets this apart from the usual quartet or trio set is the extraordinary understanding between Elias and Lovano, whose thoughts seem often to run in parallel. Johnson’s double bass tone is a joy, especially in his solo version of Shenandoah.
