Review: Let's not mince words. Everything you want from a great jazz trio recording -electricity, pacing, innovation, dynamic virtuosity and interplay, flights of fancy and passion -are found in great abundance here. This is a great concept: adding an elder to the mix. Ron Carter locks in beautifully and the trio swings mightily. Tracks 3-6 are a tribute to Cedar Walton.
