MUSIC REVIEW BY George Fendel, Jazz Scene

Hooray for David Sills for a few reasons. He opts for a tenor sound which is rich and righteous AND on this recording, he includes two of the world's greatest players in Alan Broadbent, piano and Gary Foster, alto sax. If you haven't heard them, pick up this CD. I promise you'll be mesmerized. To the rhythm section, add Larry Koonse, guitar; Putter Smith, bass and Tim Pleasant, drums. That all makes for an outstanding aggregation. But back to David Sills. What you just have to like about him is that he plays beautiful, serene lines and never overplays. In a slight way, a Paul Desmond on tenor, if you will. With the exception of Never Let Me Go and Bag's Groove, most of the tunes are originals written by various group members, and there's some very satisfying work and fascinating interplay here.
