to write a review


Very fresh music, even though it was recorded in 2003.
This is a very adventurous CD for Bill Stewart. I applaud him for his creative vision and his refusal to rest on his laurels. The tunes are forward thinking and well put together. I was not expecting to hear sampling on a Bill Stewart CD. Very cool. I think it's GREAT that it's not on a label. More power to CD Baby and independent artistry!!!!

Special vessel
The touch,the pulse,the swing,the color,the time,the kit can and does,say no more -listen.


This is a very enjoyable set of pieces -- fine musicianship, well-crafted tunes, and another 60+ minute drum lesson from Mr. Stewart, who continues to amaze. Kudos to cdbaby for providing an outlet for such great music!

Andrew Noble

amazing cd for jazz nuts...
CD is super fab, not is the music full of the best organ, rhodes and drum playing you can find, it has a small carbon footprint as i comes in a card board sleeve!! thumbs up billy!

Juraj Susanik

Fantastic compositions and the band chemistry!
So fresh, inventive and really personal. I feel it deeply!
Thank you Bill, Larry and Kevin!

Love your work!


Steve in the UK

Brilliant idea brilliantly played out!
I may be biased being both a drummer and also a member of the rapidly growing cult here in the UK which reveres Bill Stewart as a Living Drum God, but this is quite simply a brilliant idea brilliantly played out.

Sir Lord Gangly

These boys really know how to take you for a greasy ride!
These boys really know how to take you for a greasy ride! Give me some of that greasy grease and let's get all greased up! While you're at it, give me side order of grease, maa'm! And then a check when you get a chance.

Paul Marangoni

Very cool music
Bill plays great and sounds great. The whole concept with the two organs really works.

Romain SECCO

Really nice...
I think Bill is one of the most amazing today's jazz drummer.
He always had this incredible sound...
This is a nice album with great musicians, some tracks are maybe not very easy to feel, but it's always a nice drumming lesson.
