After listening a few times I am mixed on this one . Klemmer has an appealing fluid style on the slower tempoed tracks , but I didn't care for his fast playing . His sound is kind of generic . The guitar player had an odd style , at times reminiscent of Blood Ulmer and Larry Coryell . The drumming was pretty solid . I really did not like how they played "How Deep is the Ocean " . What is the point of playing a ballad in that fashion ? Odd too , because the best track on the album for me was the ballad " You Don't Know What Love is " which I thought was effectively moody . So overall , four tracks I liked and three I did not , hence a mixed opinion . I need to hear more from Klemmer to tilt me one way or the other .
