Time Well Spent is a good way to describe the feeling after spending some moments listening to this recording. Pat Collins, a first-call musician for both the studio and the stage, enlists the talents of two of the best — Tom Szczesniak and Reg Schwager — to form a powerhouse trio. Together, they have a synergy that is just stunning, each player demonstrating his mastery while achieving a brilliant connection to his musical mates. Time Well Spent is poignant and gorgeous. ” - Heather Bambrick

For the long overdue followup to his 2005 debut disc, Toronto-area bassist Pat Collins focuses on absolutely lovely and evocative music realized with accordionist Tom Szczesniak and guitarist Reg Schwager. On a tender rendition of Still Crazy After All These Years, Collins’s acoustic bass tugs at heartstrings.” - Peter Hum
