A rare set from French keyboardist Martial Solal – and one of his few funky records! The set features Solal on electric and acoustic piano, playing in a trio that includes Bernard Lubat on drums and Henri Texier on bass – and the tunes on the set have a rolling funky feel that's great all the way through. A number of tracks seem to blend the acoustic and electric piano using overdubs, creating a nice counterpoint on the keys – one that fills out the sound a lot more than a typical trio album, and which puts Solal at the head of some very tasty grooves!
