"Veteran pianist-composer Ran Blake includes original music, a few standards and interpretations of some of George Russell’s most important recorded pieces on this tender but ultimately bracing tribute to his longtime friend and colleague. A serene, almost autumnal feel permeates this set, but there’s no sentimentality; the music resonates with clear-eyed affirmation of life’s complexities and ambiguities." ~ David Whiteis, Jazz Times
