5.0 out of 5 stars High expectations�totally fulfilled July 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you're at all familiar with the musicians-Epstein on alto sax; Scott Colley on bass; Peter Erskine on drums-you'll probably be expecting this to be one of the finest jazz releases of 2001. And it is. Peter Epstein has recorded with musicians like Joao Paulo, Michael Cain and Miroslav Tadic, who mix classical, folk and jazz influences, and also-a bit more to my taste-with musicians like Jim Black, Jamie Saft and Brad Shepik, who cross the boundaries between jazz and rock, jazz and Balkan music. This may be Epstein's first pure jazz recording, at least as a leader, and he couldn't have picked a better rhythm section. Both of his colleagues have turned in excellent performances in the demanding sax-bass-drums format: Colley's own trio recordings have brought out some of Chris Potter's best playing on record; Erskine has appeared in trio with Marty Ehrlich, and with Jan Garbarek. This CD is easily as good as any of the above. The musicians' mutual respect and the joy they take in playing together really shine through, in every note they play. In addition to the superb musicianship (which is only to be expected from these three) and the high level of inspiration (which can't always be counted on), the CD also benefits from some fine composing/arranging: almost every track has a memorable tune. (PS: Although the packaging doesn't make it clear, this is a studio recording.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxed alto trio May 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Recorded in just 4 hours in NYC- as they used to make most jazz records, hence the title. This cd is an alto trio with the well known drummer Peter Erskine and bass player Scott Coley, with Peter Epstein on alto sax. The music is mostly introspective in the vein of Lee Konitz' trio work. The live to two track recording in a church instead of a studio gives a natural sound. The cd is not compressed like most, hence you will have to turn it up a bit compared to most of the present day over compressed crunchy sounding discs- the way music used to sound, so in that way it is old school too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Jazz, Good Sound July 11, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Alto saxophonist Peter Epstein joins with bassist Scott Colley and drummer Peter Erskine for this minimally miked recording session that captures the sound of the three instruments with exemplary clarity and balance. All would be for naught, of course, were the performance disappointing, but thankfully, the music made by these three musicians is eminently enjoyable. Erkine is the most recognizable musician of the group, having played with Weather Report, while Colley and Epstein are younger jazz musicians who are starting to make names for themselves. This recording is well worth seeking out if you are a fan of good jazz and good sound.
