+++ ECM Touchstone of the Week +++

Recorded live at Boston’s Nightstage club in 1988 this album found John Abercrombie both pushing sonic boundaries on guitar synthesizer and, on regular jazz guitar, deepening his relationship to the world of standards. In this trio he had exceptional improvisational support from bass and drums. Marc Johnson has said this band was the first that felt ”like home” to him after the final Bill Evans Trio. And Peter Erskine was rechannelling Weather Report ideas about soloing inside the structures in this more intimate context.
