Wow! What a wonderful album by one of NY City's best jazz trios!
After watching the late,great John Hicks, God rest his soul, at the Kitano in NYC listening with his eys closed, and a smile, to Miki Hayama and her trio performing, the realization that her playing is truly special set in. Among the pieces he heard, and on this CD, was 'Taichi's Playground', one of six beautiful originals. Here the trio also pays tribute to the venerable Sam Rivers, Cole Porter, and finally Duke Ellington showcasing a compositonal and technical prowess matched by few others.
