Reception

David Franklin of JazzTimes wrote "I'm for You: Ballad Songbook (Blue Note) teams him with the veteran pianist Hank Jones (elder brother of Elvin and Thad) and the superb bassist and drummer George Mraz and Paul Motian on a project that explores the possibilities that slower tunes offer to be 'rhythmically diverse and free within the music' while at the same time sustaining the mood of the piece."[5]
