sample the album:
"A fabulous CD of music for piano trio featuring the incredible Stephen Gosling performing an exactly notated virtuosic piano part that pushes the envelope of what is possible with a piano, and the dynamic rhythm section of longtime Zorn associate Greg Cohen and the exhilarating percussionist Tyshawn Sorey. This is music that is breathtaking from start to finish and is one of Zorn's most successful projects blending classical and jazz. Intense, lyrical and ever surprising, this is yet another new world in sound from the limitless imagination of Downtown alchemist John Zorn."-Tzadik
