If ever the Organ has been used for any practical ends, a temperment of science was likely to be rectified insofar as the constructions of its parts inspired utility of newer technology as applied to the synthesis of Organ. Robert Kennedy has ascertained technology which only the Hammond Organ expresses under the viruosity of both his band and his curiosity. The harmonizations utilized throughout the album blends complexity and sophistication with simplicity and ease insofar as melodic atmospheres lend their principle precepts to any whom catch their motions.

This debut record by the Alex Levine Quartet is an incredibly strong effort with some very interesting musical ideas and an, at times, free-form feel. The music was totally improvised requiring the musicians to focus and respond to each other accordingly which gifts us with a very impressive melding of traditional bop and a bit of the avant-garde to give us a very beautiful record.

Old Bottles New Wine is definitely among one of the best traditional jazz albums I've heard all year. The consistency in tone is impressive both from a musician's and recorder's standpoint. Throughout the album they do justice to every classic they touch, which is all I would ask for from this sort of album. It is just pleasant to listen to drums, guitar, winds, and bass that sound this full and warm.
