"The guitarist has brought a fine cast on board to realize seven of Chapin's pieces. 'Squid Fantasy', an ebullient quirky swinger that inspires a strong solo from Madsen, is the perfect way to open the tribute. Indeed the blowing is fine throughout, as one would expect given the impressive discographies of the principals. "
