The Penguin Guide to Jazz[2]

The album is the fourth by Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra, the follow-up to Dream Keeper (1990).


The Penguin Guide to Jazz wrote that "It's respectful but with a certain impatience over the routine sentimentalization of these lovely tunes, particularly at a time when the country is again at war."[2]
