Tom Harrell has been widely admired for his skills both as a player and composer, which he manages in spite of an ongoing battle with schizophrenia. These sessions were recorded not long after he left the Phil Woods Quintet, where he played to critical acclaim for six years. Ten potent originals are heard on this reissue, which includes two bonus tracks omitted from the initial release (both of which appeared on the CD Visions). With the potent rhythm section of pianist James Williams, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Adam Nussbaum, plus guitarist John Abercrombie, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano, and soprano saxophonist Dave Liebman on selected tracks, every track stands out. The session explodes out of the gate with the fiery "Eons," showcasing Harrell, Lovano, and Williams (the latter who sadly passed away in 2004 from cancer). The trumpeter's soft bossa nova "Sail Away" has long since become one of his best known compositions; this version features Harrell at his peak. "Dancing Trees" also has a soft, Brazilian air, and added guest Cheryl Pyle on flute. ~ Ken Dryden
