Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-11-15 
Von's a great old guy who plays old standards but packs his sax solos with out-there licks. He loves to toss fast, angular runs in the middle of otherwise normal-sounding passages, even on the slow tracks. Overall it's a conservative sound with doses of Coltrane-kindled fire here and there.

2- Unaccompanied sax with some nice off-kilter runs.
3* - Midtempo upbeat stepper.
4* - Starts mellow, gets into a fast fast clip
5- Slow and romantic
6* - Corny longe sound, mellow jazz guitar ... but some nice crazy/burbling sax soloing going on
7 - Slow blues
8 - Gentle, slow, happy, sentimental
