Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Album's opener "Tango African" is elegant Latin scented world fusion composition in a vein of Al Di Meola's World Sinfonia. But after the music goes more to jazz field - from contemporary to post-bop. The rare connections with fusion are presented in a form of few Latin flavoured compositions only. What is bad news for fusion purists, but not for jazz lovers at all.

Music on this album generally is classic piano jazz trio recording. DeJohnette's collaborators Perez and Patitucci both are members of Wayne Shorter's quartet . Sound is acoustic/electric, and in all cases modern enough to sound fresh. There are enough space for improvisations as well. Possibly some post-bop compositions are not for everyone taste, but all them sound inspired and no way boring.

Inspired mix of world elements and modern jazz attracts by it's atmosphere and professional musicianship. Far not experimental work, this release is one of great musical standards for the contemporary jazz. Really recommended for jazz lovers.

My rating is 3+, rounded to 4.

P.S. Bonus DVD contains 20-minute documentary on the making of the album.
