TAS Recommended. Rated a "Best Audiophile Label Recording" in the November 2009 issue of The Absolute Sound.
Recorded direct-to-2-track pure analog at Oceanway Studio A in Hollywood
A possible breakout album for Anthony Wilson, this organ trio with the superb Larry Goldings on B3 features two of the finest drummers working today - half the tunes are with the swinging Jeff Hamilton on drums and the rest session drummer par excellence Jim Keltner, who lays down some truly great percussion. Aside from Wilson's exploration of Latin, south-of-the-border influences, the recording features unique performances of music by Ellington, Hawkins, Jerry Goldsmith and Van Dyke Parks.
"Sonically, you get everything you could hope for in a Michael C. Ross Oceanway live to two track analog production. There are sonic riches galore from the to-salivate-from Hammond B-3 organ with its big, fat warm bass lines to the warm, round yet precise electric guitar lines and the woody, cracklin' rim shots, snappy snares, punchy cymbals and cataclysmic kick drum explosions. Ross is going for impact not soundstage or three guys playing in the distance in a big room, so expect a big drum kit spread across the stage and room-filling man-sized images." Music = 8/10; Sound = 9/10 - Michael Fremer, Music Angle
