Editorial Reviews

This incendiary group gains standing ovations with their unique act that speaks the language of tap, drumming, and the street within the totally embracing context of Allen's deep in-the-pocket, groove-oriented jazz. Allen is one of the most respected pianists of her generation, with scans of over 36,000 units as a leader. * Geri Allen and her youthful group TIMELINE stand at the leading edge of a current, hip trend to include tap in jazz performances. Tap percussionist Maurice Chestnut, a protégé of tap icon Savion Glover, proves himself to be one of the most innovative practitioners of his discipline, and a musician of the highest order. * More than just a jazz band, this project galvanizes audiences and has a strong youth appeal, which has great potential to achieve widespread viral online and word-of-mouth marketing. * Allen remains a consistent presence on the international performance circuit, with new dates coming in regularly. She has conducted annual weeklong engagements at the prestigious Village Vanguard and Iridium clubs in NYC and has performed at countless major venues including Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center and The Black Congressional Caucus Gala. * This release is being cross-promoted with Geri Allen's March solo piano release, Flying Toward The Sound. The publicity campaign is featuring both releases simultaneously to emphasize the extraordinary virtuosity and diversity of Allen's career, which is making a quantum leap at this time. As these are her first releases in several years, and both are unique, major attention is expected in both jazz and African American lifestyle press.

"A truly gifted pianist should be a world unto his or her own while under the influence of composing magic. This Allen has accomplished with over twenty years of pure ivory joy." -- eJazzNews "Rare combination of dazzling compositional skill and melodically inventive technique." -- JazzTimes "Geri Allen, whether playing standards or her own jazz compositions, is one of the most adept, graceful jazz pianists playing in today's jazz scene." -- JazzReview "Superb songwriting ... musical elegance." -- All About Jazz

A fine jazz trio album -- as always delivered by Geri Allen. And while the addition of tap does at times provide an interesting element of percussion, it is frustrating that the visual element of the performance is missing, especially when the audience breaks into enthusiastic applause and sometimes you are left wondering "wha' happened?" This really should have been a concert DVD, and it's too bad if market considerations prevented it.

I've been a Geri Allen fan ever since Twylight came out about 20 years ago. Besides her own trio, I've seen her perform with Betty Carter, Ornette Coleman and Charles Lloyd..pretty heavy duty company. On her new cd, recorded live, Geri adds a tap dancer as additional ryhthm/percussion. It works pretty well, although it would be even better if the show was on a DVD as the visual aspect of tap dancing is a big part of enjoying that art.

This record is unique, very creative, and a live performance that deserves some type of award. Even though many of the creative jazz albums try to remove all melody and ignore the jazz legacy; this album is unique while following the great legacy. The tap dancing is indeed a great idea, and while I have really enjoyed Geri Allen's performance, the percussion is definitely what I find most outstanding. In this case, I visualize the percussion as the drums and the tap dancing. Anyway, this is a unique remarkable album, without ignoring the jazz tradition
