Here's what the critics are saying: .... a terrific recording and a first class band under the leadership of Jon Burr. His solos bring out a voice very much his own, however, a voice we hear even more of in the engagingly melodic compositions that he has contributed to this session. - JazzTimes

Gorgeous is the word for Burr's originals! - Bassics Magazine

Rainbow Over Harlem is a terrific Burr original! - New York Post

Nobody Said it Was Easy and Burr's other melodies are all hummable and the tempos toe- tappers! - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Jon Burr is a technical master, erecting solid foundations and clever embellishments as well. He was always where he needed to be, his bass lines filled with big, fat bottom notes and his solos bringing high-technique and contemporary improvisational style. - Los Angeles Times

With Burr on bass, the music radiated effortless joy and ease. - NY Times

Burr, in typically alert form, adds to the momentum and texture with his exceptionally nimble accompaniment. - Washington Post
