Matt Mitchell waited patiently to make his debut recording as a leader, working as a sideman with the likes of Dave Douglas and Tim Berne. His duet partner on this album is the omnipresent percussionist Ches Smith. They make an excellent combination, both taking a highly rhythmic nature, powering through a series of taught and and powerful improvisation. Mitchell has a ripe and powerfully focused sound on this piano, driving throughout this potent album to the finish line in a very impressive fashion. Fiction - amazon.com
