“A collection of jazz tunes reflecting Dilley’s varied influences: Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and mainstream jazz…A deeply passionate and personal work….He deftly translates all the colors, sounds, and feelings associated with his life experiences into music….His rich bass is the stuff of heart beats, ocean waves, and other natural earth rhythms.”
—Hannah Castellaw, WomanSpace
