Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2010-04-26 
solo piano canon, introspective, spiritual.
from the notes, " Geri envisioned this project as the music of
Taylor, Tyner and Hancock entering the prism that is Geri
Allen, only to be bent, reshaped and colored anew, resulting
in a flight of light and sound". 3 videos included, all tracks are
outstanding. Composed during her 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship.
1: 6:04 for McCoy Tyner, a bit more abstract
2: 5:56 for Herbie Hancock, orchestral
3: 4:25 for Cecil Taylor, percussive, polyrhythmic
4: 16:06 the spiritual centerpiece
5: 3:24 for Cecil Taylor, percussive, polyrhythmic
6: 7:00 a tribute to mothers
7: 5:44 dancing through time & space
8: 6:24 for McCoy Tyner
9: 5:05 for her son, mellow D  Farrell 04/2010
