What the critics say:
"This trio has touches of Jarrett, Peacock and DeJohnette. Lekan is on his way...a rich tone, and bass lines that do more than just keep pace. He's produced a moody collection and uses the vocals to enhance that quality." - JazzTimes

"Bassist Tim Lekan has created 12 compositions that employ mostly minor-keyed, haunting themes explored intelligently and cohesively by his outstanding trio and singer Gina Roche...Lekan is stepping out not only as a distinctive bass player with his own full-bodied, matured sound, but also as the leader of a group that deserves notice...Singer Roche, however, is what makes the listener sit up and take notice whenever she joins the group...Indeed, Roche sings several of the tunes, such as By Myself, without words, calling attention to the music itself...Pianist Porter proves himself a natural in the group as well...His subdued but sympathetic comping and intelligent solos are treats unto themselves. P.M. deserves notice from serious listeners..." - Jazz News
