“A fine record with a few programming problems, Mike Murley is once again impressive on his 1992 release Time & Tide. The focal point of the recording is the Murley composition “The Split,” a haunting track with a simple minor-key melody doubled on arco bass and tenor, which then launches into a groove reminiscent of Coltrane circa 1963. Murley and John MacLeod, on flugelhorn, both play poignantly, creating solos with dramatic contour and color. This track alone makes the album worth owning. The rest of the album is nearly as good; Murley’s “New Dream’s” allows for some enjoyable, albeit brief, interplay between Murley and MacLeod. Pianist Dave Restivo contributes an aggressive, energetic solo on bassist Jim Vivian’s composition, “Parabola.” Drummer Ted Warren replaces Elmes for four tracks, and brings a darker intensity to the recording. The album could have benefited from some track adjustment, though; the song order seems to be have determined by the differring drummers (Elmes on the first half, Warren on the second), which disrupts the flow of the record somewhat.”(Dan Cross, AMG)
