REVIEWED IN DOWNBEAT (JULY 2021): 

“Charnett Moffett’s latest reminds us once again, that his quicksilver imagination matches the speed of his fingers.  His vocalized electric bass pulsates across these 12 tracks, sometimes setting a fevered pace for guitarist Jana Herzen and the meditative melodiousness of Irwin Hall’s saxophones.   Whatever the musical moment, there’s tight synchronicity at play, and “Flying in the Air” is solid evidence of their collective arrival on a harmonic intersection or a blues motif. And speaking of the blues, it’s particularly sweet on “Little Flowers.” The vocal intimations are replaced by actual human ones on Spirit & Bride Song.” Which presages the anthem-like crescendo of “Love For The People” and the even more celebratory hosanna of “Rejoice.” The latter track is also a platform for Moffett to deliver a full-throated lyric almost indistinguishable from his bass. Instances like this summon memories of his late father, Charles, and the harmolodic experience he shared with Ornette Coleman.  A dynamic, ever-shifting dialogue issues from their collaboration; it’s a conference of multifaceted tonalities and intuition.”
– HERB BOYD, 3.5 STARS
