"The restful 'Li' is a beautiful jazz ballad marked by David's penchant for Pat Metheny-esque lyricism..."

David Becker, whose earlier records with his trio were fusion-oriented, surprisingly plays five straight-ahead jazz standards on this set. Teamed as usual with his drummer brother Bruce Becker and bassist Tom Lilly, Becker sometimes recalls Jim Hall and Pat Metheny a little, but mostly displays his own flexible sound. His seven originals are always in the post-bop mold, featuring strong melodies, logical improvisations, and subtle surprises. All in all, this set serves as an excellent introduction to the early 21st century music of David Becker, and it is easily recommended. ~ Scott Yanow
