AMG Review by Scott Yanow (4):
Billy Childs focuses on his piano playing during his third Windham Hill Jazz CD (although he contributed seven of the eight numbers), and he demonstrates that he was quickly rising to the top of his field. Childs uses either acoustic bassist Tony Dumas or electric bassist Jimmy Johnson, drummer Mike Baker, Bob Sheppard (on tenor, soprano, alto and flute) and, for section work (on respectively one or two cuts), trombonist Bruce Fowler and trumpeter Walt Fowler. A highlight is Childs' trio exploration of McCoy Tyner's "Four by Five." The pianist's music is complex and quite original, not fitting securely into any preconceived category except as "modern jazz." This is one of Billy Childs' best all-round sessions to date.
