Album Review
Reviewed 2004-06-08 
Nice guitar-led improv from an all-star quartet. The compositions have a warm, fuzzy ECM feel to them which in lesser hands could have spelled disaster. Thankfully, the musicians here are more than up to the task zand the result is an engaging listen. The solos are excellent, with Baron’s powerful drums setting the pace. Good stuff!

**1. Wistful searching opener
2. Slow, melancholy
*3. Light, floating melody gets heavier in solos
*4. Tangled guitar builds to tense climax
5. Slow start, then mellow swing
6. Moody ballad
*7. Twisty melody to start with swing solos
8. Sentimental ballad
9. Soft plucked intro, then searching melody
10. Violin led classical piece
11. Loud raucous start, then fades slowly
