You don't just listen to this music. You breathe it in to your mind and your heart where it stays and grows and gives you a pleasure only found in heaven (I'm guessing that last part). The next time I hear it I'll know what I'm in for. I'll have to have lots of mental and emotional energy because the musicians are using all they got. If you like jazz piano trios this is among the best - and, I would venture, among the best effort for all three musicians involved. The trio is an unusual setting for Cobham. I remember him coming up. He specialized in high-energy or fusion playing. This is his date and, from his liner notes, he took seriously the integration of the drums into the overall presentation. What surprised me about him was the high level of his musicianship - we know he's got chops - but here he's as sensitive musically as Barron and Carter and helps create the music, not just support it. His playing is so crisp, each stroke stands out regardless of how fast the tempo. Ron Carter needs no introduction but here he out does himself. He brings forth all the colors on the bass palette, at times humorous, clever, always musically inventive and going in directions we didn't even know were there. There are a few duos with Cobham where they run around each other, complete each other's thoughts and seem to be of the same mind. Cobham really amazes here. You simply don't expect a drummer to think so musically! And Barron! Oh, I'm shaking. If I had the technical vocabulary to describe what he's doing it still wouldn't be enough.Read more ›
