"This studio date features the rhythm section from Jaki Byard's big band the Apollo Stompers, with bassist Ralph Hamperian and drummer Richard Allen. Other than Byard's solo of the title track and the bassist's rather dull "Breath," this CD is devoted to Byard originals. While the pianist's techinque is impressive as always, his songs are not as strong as on many of his other releases, with the exception of his dreamy solo on "Oslo to Kristiansund to Malmo."
