Wow! This a properly good recording and pressing - easily as good as the Tone Poets, but without the annoying translucent sleeves! Bill and the guys are in my lounge :)

DownBeat gave it five stars. AllMusic 4/5. So things are looking up for this fine release.

I don't think this record has been talked about enough. The Tone Poets get most of the attention, but this sounds outstanding. Very audiophile sounding to me. Not sure the recording method used, but the drums are clear, guitar front and center, and the bass bringing the grove. Hard to believe this only has 2 reviews and not much love given. If you are just discovering this album exists, buy it you won't be disappointed.

“Playing together” is a phrase so commonplace it’s easy to forget what it signifies. Of course, there’s the obvious: making music with others, performing as an ensemble, being creative in a group. But the music guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Rudy Royston offer here suggests a specific spin on the idea, one that emphasizes the togetherness of the playing. Even though the selections on Valentine hail from a range of styles, the performances represent jazz playing at its most sublime. And music seldom gets more “together” than that.

Gosh this is a super recording and wonderful pressing. Quiet, clear, deep and all the superlatives. If you are a Bill fan then you won’t be disappointed. Terrific musicianship and feel.
