Every jazz musician has at some point made a big band and/or strings albumand this is Hubbard’s foray into that genre. It’s very mellowand surprisingly so, given Eric Dolphy’s participation and the fact that none other than Wayne Shorter did the arrangements. […]

allmusic
The manner in which this recording is programmed is thoughtful in that it lends to the diversity of the project, but is seamless from track to track. Dan Morgenstern’s hefty liner notes also explain the concept behind this ambitious project, one which did not compare to any of Hubbard’s other recordings in his career. […]

Burning Ambulance
Taken as a whole, it’s both a fascinating experiment for Hubbard (who never did anything remotely comparable again) and a genuinely beautiful, romantic work of art. […]
