"Scott Kinsey's realization of these tunes manages to not only pay tribute to the works of Zawinul and Shorter, but also to mine the music for discoverable gold. His band plays the daylights out of these tunes. This album deserves your attention." -- Peter Erskine, drummer of Weather Report "The album is true to the spirit of Zawinul's music. It often feels like an updated Weather Report for the 21st century… The technical viruosity of the musicians is something to behold. All of the numbers are upbeat, joyous affairs… driven along by an infections beat… The whole is proof that Kinsey and his ensemble have learned to speak Luniwaz absolutely but in their own distinctive way." – Sandy Brown Jazz
