The very first ECM release (which has been reissued on CD), this trio set features pianist Mal Waldron, bassist Isla Eckinger and drummer Clarence Becton improvising quite freely on five of Waldron's compositions plus "Willow Weep For Me." The music overall is not that memorable or unique but it does have its unpredictable moments and finds Waldron really stretching himself. ~ Scott Yanow

The '80s were a very productive decade for pianist Mal Waldron. This session is recorded in Italy, this time in a trio setting. Bassist Leonard Jones and drummer Sangoma Everett join him for a five-song set comprised of Waldron originals. "Spaces" opens and utilizes Waldron's rich and massive chords, describing space as they move along, pushed and pulled playfully by the rhythm section. The title track is a ballad of haunting beauty and grace. Revisiting his "The Git Go," the trio rolls it along for over 13 minutes with slowly changing colors, like a sun setting over cold water. The closing "Because Of You I Live Again" is heartbreakingly emotive--a stunningly played and written piece. The clear recording enhances the subtle interplay between the three sympathetically linked musicians.
