    The personnel on this album guarantees straightaway that the music will be, at the very least, excellent, if not transcendent. Drummer Paul Motian (a member of Bill Evans's legendary trio), Ron Carter (of Miles Davis's groundbreaking 1960s quintet), and guitarist Bill Frisell (a contemporary icon who has expanded and revolutionized the sound of jazz guitar) created the 10 tracks of this set over the course of two days. Originals, Thelonious Monk covers, and versions of tunes like "You Are My Sunshine" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" are treated to the exquisite, forward-thinking interplay one would expect from such a meeting. The results are challenging, beautiful, and radiant

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.80) - "The setting is perfect for Frisell's relaxed, lyric style, whether investigating the harmonic and rhythmic nooks and crannies of Thelonious Monk tunes or bringing a David Lynch-style noir to the bluegrass murder ballad 'Pretty Polly'."
    JazzTimes (p.89) - "[Motian] adopts a fluid role in which he easily, organically morphs from pianistic comping to playing contrapuntal lines with Lovano to occasionally filling in bass lines..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "As delicate as fine-spun gossamer, Frisell's spidery, discursive melodies are underpinned throughout by Carter's elastic figures and the deceptively easy gait of Motian's nuanced drumming."
