4 stars It was competing with Gary Burton exactly that Pat showed the glimpse of the technology. The remark said that he respects Gary at time in one's teens and it can perform all tunes of Gary will not be a lie. He might already have found the point that he had to establish really though he competed with Ornette Coleman that he respected back. Pat accomplishes an impact debut by this album. The performance of man who had a sensibility that differed obviously from the guitar style of existing Jazz till then and was peculiar got into the news at once in the world. Pat announces this album from ECM and the work of interim Pat has been released from ECM. Then, he has left a very reformative work. The form of Solo and two faces of PMG are his still lifeworks exactly. Of course, contact is tried with various musicians. The same thing might be able to be said to this album in the respect. This Trio to be accompanied by familiar, deep Bob Moses and Jaco Pastorius considerably has fantastic feelings as much as possible also in the band with Gary Burton. It might be condensed to the performance with feelings of the country a little that the environment and man who had grown up Pat showed with this album. He has the impression that gives the listener the character in this album and own message. It visits by "SirabHorn" and "Midwestern Night Dream", etc. and it might be able to know it. Bass of Jaco is really good each other and affixes the flower to the creation of Pat. Those originality is being splendidly expressed by these three people. Besides, all are tunes of Pat though "Round Trip/Broadway Blues" is a tune of Ornette. An excellent musician without limiting it to the item of Jazz in the ability of the composition can express the fact deflecting also with musical instruments. It takes to the musician whether to be able to express it with musical instruments by composing very. It might be one person of "Expressionist" that Pat is very few in the respect. He establishes the route of PMG after this album. It exists like the expressed original letter his of that character splendid this work and.
