This duet puts Muhal in direct sonic context with other Chicago pianists: Jodie Christian, Herbie Hancock and Andrew Hill. His playing here is simply gorgeous. Characteristics such as the clarity of his runs, his patience, the use of the sustain pedal, the intensity, the emotional sensitivity, and the final phrase that rings out on the piano: all make this piece a bona fide masterpiece.
