The cover isn’t one of Prestige’s most iconic designs, but it could be one of its most dottily endearing: seagulls stalking about a beach make for a humorous reference to the album’s title. The music is a confident, feel-good delight […]

This quartet is superb. If possible, listen to the way they interpreted “On A Misty Night.” This number is hauntingly elegant, producing a reverie in me each and every time I hear it. Do yourself a favor and add this disc to your Jazz collection. Its been available for awhileand once its gone, there’s no guarantee it will be again issued in our lifetime. […]

I had forgotten just how beautiful that album is—Tadd, with those lush locked chordsand Trane, with those wails and scale runs. Fascinating combination of tones and techniques. […]
