These guys were already established when this record was made. For reasons best known to original producer Gerry Teekens, or maybe because they couldn’t decide whose record it was, it didn’t appear for half a decade. That is a separate story, best told elsewhere. The fact is that it came out when each man was more deeply notched into the tally-post of modern jazz, each of them a touchstone for particular styles of piano-, saxophone- and guitar-playing. Hearing them thus masked throws us into the music, not the personalities or critical pigeonholes. Here’s M.T.B.BRIAN MORTON (2021) [Brian Morton is a music writer, co-author of The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings. He has been a regular collaborator on BBC Radios 3 & 4, and on BBC Radio Scotland.]
