I enjoyed Cook's earlier release, Tempest. But I found that this 2012 release from Cook had more shades of mood and subtlety than his earlier release. The emotional depth here was really nice. Again, Cook's guitar work is very enjoyable throughout. But this time vocalist, Emma Lee did great renditions of "I Put a Spell on You" and "Ne Me Quitte Pas", the only vocal tracks on the CD. Cook collaborated with several other artists on this effort and the result was a very beautiful journey from track to track. Recommended.

These songs are moodier and introspective than the lively, fun, and upbeat songs of rumba guitar, and in my opinion the better for it. I most liked tracks 2, 5, 7, and 9.

Another Jesse Cook fan who didn't find this particular effort interesting.

I usually really like Jesse Cook's CDs, but this one just didn't capture my interest.

Toronto based guitarist, composer and producer, he incorporates flamenco rumba jazz with a flavor of other form of "world music" He never disappoints. Saw him at the NAC. What a treat.

I am a huge fan of Jesse Cook and saw him perform last fall. I enjoy this album, although I don't care for the vocal tracks. I find the instrumental tracks lovely and soothing to listen to, especially in the evening. I don't think it sounds at all like elevator music.

Jesse Cook has put out a lot of great albums in the latest part of his career, but this is not one of them. I found this attempt at elevator music entirely soporific and bland.
