    This is a collective trio, fully utilizing the strengths of all three players, each of whom calls a different continent home. They have in common a deeply resonant sense of tradition and place, giving all of this music a decidedly folk-like bearing, unsurprising given that bassist Haden even made his work with Ornette Coleman sound like folk music in the late '50s and early '60s. His rich and warm tones envelop and invite.
    Egberto Gismonti's guitar and piano playing (he plays numerous other instruments on his own solo albums and in other settings) contrasts beautifully with Jan Garbarek's cool Scandinavian saxophone voicings. The latter's composition "Spor" is so finely attuned to the players that it could well have been written by any one or all of the musicians.
