On this debut CD, Scotsman Ross Milligan serves up a very tasty program of contemporary jazz. While Milligan plays some acoustic rhythm and banjo, his main contributions are on a warm-sounding semi-hollowbody electric guitar. His quartet includes pianist Paul Harrison, bassist Brian Shels and Alyn Cosker on drums. Martin Kershaw plays sax on 5 tracks and John Nichol sings on "Rivers Run," the set's only vocal. "Three Wishes" recalls the Pat Metheny Group, minus that group's synth sounds and sampling. "Wasp Dance" recalls the hard-driving post bop of Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley. The title tune begins with a fingerpicked guitar, which is soon joined by piano, light percussion and a lead bass line, before giving way to a great modal improvisation by Paul Harrison on piano. "Passing Places" ends with a mere 45 seconds of lead acoustic guitar, yet it all comes off perfectly. The brief "This is Just to Say" ends the disc with double-tracked acoustic guitars by Milligan. While this CD doesn't give prominence to Milligan's guitar, it is strong on many levels: great compositions, arrangements and blowing, all conveyed with clear, unmuddied sound. The music on this CD has a timeless quality and I recommend it without reservation. © Patrick Ragains

13 mostly instrumental tracks of reflective mood, deftly produced, subtle in tone and texture, and paced cleverly to maintain intrigue and interest. The mix of Milligans banjo and the sax of Martin Kershaw on White Vans make the world go round, followed by the beautiful piano of classical, Counting the hours, demonstrates how Ross is able to move between styles with consummate professionalism. Excellent.
