MUSIC REVIEW BY Marc Medwin, Cadence

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Hal Galper's offering was the biggest surprise. It's the furthest out, his playing much more adventurous than I would have expected. Clearly in the tradition, his keyboard attack is nevertheless somehow brazen, bold and certain, as with Andrew Hill of the Strange Serenade period. Even the usually serene "Naima" emits raw energy, the melody twisted almost out of recognition. "Milestones" is subjected to similar treatment, becoming a no holds- barred fauret into pantonality. Scene's Johnson and Bishop provide wonderful support, and while this set comprises a more or less conventional piano trio hierarchy, their roles are far from insignificant.
