    Personnel: Peter Erskine (drums); John Taylor (piano); Palle Danielsson (acoustic bass).
    Recorded at Rainbow Studio, Oslow, Norway in September 1995.
    Although led by a drummer, this trio session mostly showcases English pianist John Taylor who is heavily influenced by Keith Jarrett. His interplay with bassist Palle Danielsson and drummer Peter Erskine on the group originals is impressive, leaving plenty of space and developing quite slowly but also holding on to one's attention. ~ Scott Yanow

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (9/96, p.113) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Things get going on the tunes of others....Erskine's own `Romeo & Juliet' introduce[s] a welcome degree of abrasiveness. Such material gets the best out of Erskine, and, as a consequence, the trio finds its niche."
    Down Beat (9/96, pp.47-48) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "...Erskine continues his trio excursions through music both spare and lyrical....Delicate, it somehow refuses to become strictly background music. Up close, its spareness belies easy description....AS IT IS...is about getting lost in the music."
    JazzTimes (12/96, p.118) - "...This trio is a marvelous unit, discovering striking compositional frameworks for its musings..."
