Reincarnation Review :: January 2002
"Everything he's [Gregory James] recorded has had a soulfulness, a willingness for the music to go where the spirit leads.

Gregory James is reunited with bassist Kai Eckhardt (John McLaughlin, Steve Smith) here, not only as rhythmic and harmonic foil, but as a producer of Reincarnation. An amazing musician, Eckhardt's vision and appetite for funk seems to have grown even since their last pairing, on James' The Search (1998)."
