 Notes & Reviews
I heard this on Youtube and liked it. A very short CD for a lady who has so many great songs that could be Herbie-fied.
- William E Goff, 12/30/2010, USA

Good stuff. Mr. Hancock brings a very interesting and listenable perspective to this anthology. Not quite sure how it was rated jazz recording of the year though.
- Julian Sargisson, 11/24/2008, Canada
