Ethan Iverson (p), Reid Anderson (b), Jorge Rossy (d)
Bar code: 8427328420464
Iverson's first recordings for Fresh Sound are showcases for his working trio with Reid Anderson and Jorge Rossy. The originals are theatrical and the standards are treated with love and disrespect, Iverson's trio's performances are of concert hall proportions.
—Howard Mandel, Downbeat
"Upon reading Ethan Iverson's highly intelligent yet good-humored liner notes to this fine album, one is already acquainted with an artist of great sensitivity and imagination. The music doesn't at all disappoint. Accompanied by Reid Anderson on bass and Jorge Rossy on drums, Iverson sketches rich and varied piano portraits from the slow, ominous groove of "What the Kraken Knows" to the multimetric frenzy of "Hullabaloo 2" and the abstract, shifting ensemble configurations of "In Memoriam."
Along with its sister CD, Deconstruction Zone (Standards), this record reveals Iverson as a musician of uncommon depth and personality."
—David R. Adler (All Music Guide)
