Recorded August 25th, 25th, 1999 at Rote Frabrik Zürich.

Featuring
Barry Guy (bass),
Marilyn Crispell (piano) and
Paul Lytton (percussion).

This trio session comes as somewhat of a surprise given that the majority of its time is given over to composed works by Guy. Not that the pieces follow a head-solos-head format by any means. Indeed, Guy works the composed portions with the improvised ones in such a seamless manner that, except when clearly stated melodic themes appear, it's often difficult to tell whether a given section is composed or not. The results are delightful.
