"On this latest disc, only Dans second as sole leader, his playing is to the fore. I cant think of very many recent offerings with trombone as the only horn, or of many trombonists who could meet such a challenge, but Dan Barrett comes through with flying colors. What is striking here is not just his secure technique, consistently superb intonation, and mastery of mutes (the plunger in particular), but the maturity of his conception and the beauty of his sound. And all this is at all times at the service of the music; the message is always there.? -- Dan Morgenstern, jazz editor and producer and the Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University.
