Someone has been holding out on us...

This album with leader Hal Galper on piano includes guitarist John Scofield, bassist Wayne Dockery and drummer Adam Nussbaum, and has finally been reissued after being out of circulation not long after its original 1979 release. It's an impressive yet understated affair, combining quartet efforts with duets and solos. Of the latter, Scofield creates a rich aria of effects on a wondrous read of "Monk's Mood", dueting with Galper on a treat of "Continuity", as Galper also teams up with Dockery on the bluesy "Yellow Days". In ensemble form, the team is cool toned on the tensile "Ivory Forest" and drives hard on the modal "Rapunzel's Luncheonette". A hidden treasure-don't let it get by you the second time around.
