Saxophonist Mike Murley and pianist David Braid combine their prodigious sills on this mostly-mellow live recording, each contributing three original compositions to the seven-track outing. The leaders get brilliant backing form bass Jim Vivian, whose remarkable solo bowing begins the title piece and the under-stated drumming of Canadian expat Ian Froman, now based in New York. The playing is assure, quietly intense, wonderfully imaginative, intricately propulsive – they make complexity sound so easy, proof of the ultra-high standards achieved."
