“Best Northwest Jazz CDs of 1999”
– Jim Wilke, Jazz After Hours, NPR

“Nelda Swiggett’s second recording as leader shows the Seattle-based pianist in a bright and creative light. Refreshing and somewhat (Thelonious) Monk-like, the leader’s piano artistry and original compositions urge her quartet to the creation of an exciting session.”
