5 stars This is a forgotten or not sufficiently appreciated masterpiece. Here Allan proves to be at home in all musical circles, provided those such really strange chords where his fingers and his soul can fly slightly. Needless to mention the power of accompanying musicians. The muscular and slightly Kirk Covington on drums. The great Gary Willis fretless bass. They are all jazz standards, agree. There are not, however, wind instruments. Remains the perfect and tamed piano by Gordon Beck, a musician who perhaps has not had the chance he deserved. Here every pretext is good to make music of an high level. Even the simple melody of Norwegian Wood , a mixolydian melody originally composed by George Harrison. But the highlight, the best track , is None Too Soon by Gordon Beck, with its odd time signatures (3 / 4 maybe) and the drama that comes out. Some kind of special music hard to be missed.
