Thom Keith has a nice voice on alto saxophone, the tunes that feature the alto are the tunes that sound the most together. The bass playing of Blakeslee is tight, there are moments when his playing is up in the mix and the bottom end is full and round. The track, "Yrrehs Mas" by Keith is an example of everything working and sounding as it should. These moments occur when Blakeslee is producing sustained - loose acoustic bass notes.
For a live recording, it is of a fairly good quality. The liner notes, as scant as they are, indicate the album was recorded using a Korg PXR4 with an onboard condenser microphone, straight off the floor with no editing. The last statement is in reference to a second take of one of the songs, the first take with a title, "Just Messin’ With Ya" at less than half a minute is a misfire to the track entitled "Jetlag Blues" a composition by bassist, Jonathan Blakeslee.
The trio recording in the live setting has allowed the musicians to approach the music with a different spirit, more energy from the rhythm section and a different groove, not held as tightly in check by the recording studio ambiance, the drums and bass actually swing at times. The highlight is the cover tune, straight up contemporary jazz by Sonny Rollins, a quality interpretation and something the trio should consider doing some more of.
