Its nice to hear strong players performing such enjoyable compositions.
This is a well recorded documentation of 3 virtuoso musicians performing solid, listenable compositions. The various pieces included solo guitar explorations, a quirky blues, extended group improvisations and a couple of beautiful ballads . The variety of form, style and texture from piece to piece kept me focused and interested. I strongly recommend this CD to anyone with an interest in acoustic jazz guitar, jazz composition, or group improvisation.

This album has many divergent atmospheres, plan on really listening if you put it on. Some incredible virtuosity in the playing, then a tune like Six More is the prettiest thing I've heard in a long time. (Aldebaran is close) the Eggman is a strange choice to start the album, though once your ears are grabbed with that, you're properly prepared to experience the rest of the music. The music is played sensitively and with artistry. The worst that can be said is that some parts come close to over-playing, yet on the whole that actually seems to be a level of enthusiasm that is unexpected from a freakin' acoustic trio. These guys probably light up the joint live!
Still, the beauty of Prager's writing is probably the best part of the album for me. It feels admittedly a little funny to review a "jazz" album and wish for a little less soloing, and that certainly is no reflection on the imaginative improvisations themselves - I can't think of any solo that I'd want to remove. At the end of the album though, it wasn't one more solo I wanted to hear, it was one more melody from Sandy Prager's creative soulfulness. This guy can write, that is good reason to look forward to the things to come. Get this one while you still can.
