This is a rather unusual tempo for Pat Martino, but on this whole ballad record he decided to renounce his "fastest gun in the West" reputation and to open his heart. Here he chose to sit down under the willow tree and let his guitar gently weep, to stretch the melody and stress its blues implications in order to enhance its emotional qualities. And when his fingers occasionally take momentum during his solo, Goldstein's poised electric piano maintains the steady pace and the meditative spirit.
