  • “Trumpeter Fishwick takes the lead here on his first-ever quartet album. Piano is omitted in favour of Colin Oxley's guitar, much like the Art Farmer-Jim Hall collaborations, with bassist Dave Chamberlain and drummer Steve Brown rounding out the group. Fishwick is enamoured of the hard bop style of Lee Morgan and Kenny Dorham, and his pristine sound and rapid-fire attack are right on the money - typified by a torrid run on 'Stablemates'. He also recalls Chet Baker's approach on 'That Old Feeling' following Chamberlain's opening theme statement. This is resourceful music with a strong swing feel (bass, drums and Oxley's guitar are spot on), and, like all the best players, Fishwick seems to have time in hand. A terrific recording, and a classy milestone for Fishwick and company.” - Peter Vacher - Jazz UK
