"Gretchen Parlato's wordless vocals melding seamlessly with Binney... Parlato executes remarkable intervallic gymnastics on the through-composed chamber miniature, "Same Stare, Different Thought," and sings her own lyrics on Binney's third recording of the more romantic, but ultimately energetic yet unfailingly lyrical "Home"
— John Kelman, allaboutjazz.com

“Home,” features Gretchen Parlato singing a tune that Binney has recorded twice previous, but this breathy, heart-wrenching vocal version is absolutely my favorite. This album is a fantastic marriage of cerebral contemporary jazz with raw emotion and beauty.
