Cadance June 1997
"Kim Parker knows how to sing it right. On (3), one of her infrequent recordings, she comes out twinging and sassy but never overblown. She plays it big on "Beautiful Friendship", is very quiet and dramatic on Randy Newman´s "Real Emotional Girl" and shows her ability to work effectively to a big climax
on "Let Go" and a bluesier than usual take of "Cry Me A River".
Pianist Håkan Rydin gets equal billing and his quiet but strong playing is a major feature of this CD. He plays inventively with a lot of blues and funk inflections but on the piano trio piece, "Baboo", his sound to brightes and more exploratory the Bill Evans.
