I was given a copy of this album by a friend at work after Herbie won the Grammy. I play some part of it every day and every time I play it I hear something I missed before.
By gstuart54 (Chicago, IL)
Too subtle for some, I'm sure, but if you listen INTO these songs and instrumentals, the love and respect that Herbie and company pour into Joni's music is disciplined, creative, triumphant.

||Easy to Dismiss - Hard to Forget|
At first glance, true jazz legend Herbie Hancock working with today's more popular vocalists sounds like a sellout, ala Supernatural. Thirty seconds into the recording all assumptions fade.
By kwolin (Washington, DC)
||One of the finest CD's In A Long Time|
The sweet notes of Wayne and Herbie playing the piano, accompanied by some of the best voices in Jazz music. Joni's lyrics give this CD 100% in my book.
By Ilene (Sunland,)
||One of the greatest albums in years|
Another marvelous outing by Herbie, one of his best. Edith and the Kingpin is the standout track. Tina Turner is on fire.
