REVIEWS

"'Always A Pleasure' must stand as one of his most satisfying dates (recorded live) with a sympathetic ensemble..." -- Cadence

"...exceptional on several counts.... The four-part suite sounds like an updating of Taylor’s Blue Note recordings from the ‘60s, with the leader ecstatically zigzagging between pensive and restrained lyricism and gut-busting catharsis." -- The Boston Phoenix

"This is easily the best large-unit Taylor record of the '90s." -- Thom Jurek, AMG
