Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-12-18 
Sax/bass/drums trio. Mostly a showcase for saxophonist and composer Bishop, with tracks that wander into group improv settings. Several tracks are fast-driven jazz grooves, with 10 and 12 standing out in particular. Others like 3 and 8 go for slow atmosphere and wouldn't be out of place on the ECM label.

1- Slow solo sax, a prologue
2- Energetic groove, bright and nicely cookin'
3- Mid/fast, with a casual, open feel
4- A quiet crawl
5- Boppin' but short
6- Perky, playful, mid/fast
7- Driving mid/fast
8- Slow, delicate
9- Gentle playful popping, sneaky
10- Mid/fast groove under spare, wailing sax. Slowly builds to a frenzy
11- Clarinet fragments
12- Upbeat and fast
13- Gentle midtempo flowing, quite nice .... Lasts 4+ minutes .... then a minute-long HIDDEN TRACK: An upbeat, bopping little groove, fun.
