3 stars Tricycles features unsurprisingly 3 musicians on the record: the drummer and bass player come from the Pat Metheny band. The presence of Mark Egan is quite unexpected since his music direction went into an opposite, more relaxed and atmospheric direction than Coryell's. Egan's playing is quite fast recognized in general and here he is again irresistible on his fretless bass not trying to copy the post-bop style of the covers. The drummer is reliable and inclines towards modern jazz, too, he offers several tasty transitions.

Coryell plays splendidly, with lyricism and tenderness where it's needed like on the Beatles cover. Most of tracks are fast-paced which allows player for some fusion elements to sneak it. The selection of tracks is a mixture of older Coryell's originals but also two compositions by Thelonious Monk which had been played 1000-times somewhere else so I would have expected less known covers.

Anyways, great playing by Coryell in particular.
