"Calvin Keys is one of the most exciting and talented young guitarists to hit the jazz scene in recent year. As evidenced by his mastery of the instrument in his first album, he is to be reckoned with in years to come.
The key to all of this is Calvin's ability to take a direction and to exploit it to the fullest in his own inimitable manner. On this, his second album on the Black Jazz Label, he leaps forward in time ans sets a pace that others will now have to follow.
it would be unfair to single out any tune and call it "BEST" for each ear is served and satiated. Exceptional work by each of his sidemen makes manifest Calvin's, as well as their own, musical gifts.
Calvin Keys is an innovator destined for greatness !"
