The third album by the group many listeners feel is John Abercrombie's best-ever band. The American guitarist has always been, by his own account, both a “traditionalist and a free player”. The same can be claimed of is colleagues here who share a strong sense for form also while improvising together. Abercrombie: “The free improvs sound more like chamber music rather than free jazz now”: not only a reflection on the emphasis on strings – guitar, violin, bass – but also of the advanced harmonic awareness of Mark Feldman, Marc Johnson and the leader.
