MUSIC REVIEW BY George W Harris, Jazz Weekly

Rare is the artist these days that plays only the flugelhorn, but for this album Dmitri Matheny makes it work and work elegantly with his team of Charles McNeal/ts-ss, Bill Anschell/p, Phil Sparks/b and Mark Ivester/dr on this collection of originals and covers. Of the former, Anschell is rich and easy with Matheny and McNeal's tenor on the pulsating read of the rarely interpreted "On A Misty Night" while Jimmy Webb's "Witchita Lineman" glisten's like the sun searchin' for another overload. The horns float meditatively on the lovely rubato of "After The Rain" and are reflective for "Humble Origins". Matheny's own "Cascadia" is a classy jaunt with McNeal's soprano in sublime form, while Anschell is romantic and reflective on dark eyes. Lyricism and taste are exuded here.
