"...This gem feels timeless. It's a stunner...This quartet (with Menzies and Phillips handling the arrangements and production) has crafted a sonic atmosphere that seduces the listener into a state of transfixed bliss. It’s one thing to create a mood; it’s quite another to sustain that mood for an entire album."  

-DownBeat Magazine (Editors’ Pick)

"The Ballads Album Miles Davis Never Recorded…Lush, emotional performances. Phillips' trumpet radiates warmth and sweetness as it floats over Menzies' delicate piano chords." 

-East Bay Express
