Drummer Tom Rainey is the leader, but he's a nicely subtle talent here – really letting the group
finds its sound and shape as a whole – which makes for some beautiful interplay between the trumpet of Ralph Alessi, saxes of Ingrid Laubrock, piano of Jacob Sacks, and bass of Drew Gress! All five
elements of the group
have an immediate resonance together – one that almost makes you feel as if the set was conceived as a drum-less session at the start, letting the other four sounds
come together – although that would hardly be the case, with Tom's name up front! Alessi and Laubrock sound especially nice in each others' company, and Gress has a way of hanging low, and really filling out the sound – on titles that include "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Just In Time/
In Your Own Sweet Way", "What's New/
There Is No Greater Love", "Stella By Starlight", and "If I Should Lose You".
