Muhal Richard Abrams (piano), Cecil McBee (bass).

Composed by Muhal Richard Abrams


Recorded: New York, January 1986


Rating: 100/100 (learn more)

In the vein of other Muhal compositions like "Charlie in the Parker," this piece has a melody that is injected with jarring inserts of harmony. The melody is technically challenging as well. What I love about how Muhal plays is how he continually refers back to the melody. The listener listens to each idea develop from its root to the newest bud.
