Demonstrating the innovative pianist's wide musical range, this early-1970s set features Dave Brubeck in a variety of settings, from a traditional combo featuring the West Coast saxophonist Lee Konitz on "Like Someone in Love," to the more experimental group of "In Your Own Sweet Way," featuring the avant-garde saxophonist Anthony Braxton demonstrating his command of more conventional jazz idioms. The album's centerpiece is an extended medley of delicate, lyrical improvisations on five pieces by the songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen.
