Down Beat - 11/91
4 Stars - Very Good - "..Recorded in..Dec.1989...Bley's harmonic intuition goes way beyond the bop vocabulary, and he stretches time like taffy..."

Product Description:

Personnel includes: Paul Bley (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass), Keith Copeland (drums).
A surprising album from Bley, long considered an outside player with little, if any, affinity for straight bop. He shatters that myth on this set, going through a dozen songs, including such anthems as "Ornithology" and "The Theme," with vigor, harmonic distinction, and rhythmic edge. He's brilliantly backed by bassist Bob Cranshaw, providing some of his best, least detached playing in quite a while, and drummer Keith Copeland, navigating the tricky changes with grace. ~ Ron Wynn
