Q (3/95, p.112) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Whilst other jazz innovators mapped out new harmonic and melodic realms, Brubeck and his band were forging time signatures anew, giving the music the wonky grace of a gazelle running the 200 metre hurdles..."Down Beat (p.61) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Both 'Kathy's Waltz' and 'Strange Meadow Lark' contain melodies and moods that keep one hearing new things time and again..."Mojo (Publisher) (12/99, p.131) - "...superb remastering puts you in the room and brings out all the shimmer of Joe Morello's drums.
