Entertainment Weekly (4/17/98, p.73) - "The restlessly creative jazz-guitar hero dives deep into grooveland. Joined by soulful space cases Medeski, Martin, and Wood, he attacks funk-meets-New Orleans-ish tunes with his typical blend of the brainy and gutsy..." - Rating: A-Down Beat (4/98, p.48) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "...a throw-down, electro-funkified party jam....the date is one long, uninterrupted damn-near ultra disco bash, and Scofield has in Billy Martin, John Medeski and Chris Wood some ornery cusses..."Musician (6/98, p.86) - "...This is a band record in every sense of the word, as if the guitarist had long yearned for the glee of simple chicken-scratch comping within MMW's demented organ trio album of subtle pleasures. No overheated solo exchanges or hot-shot trading here..."0.2232687
