This track comes from my favorite Chick Corea session, which incredibly was awarded NO stars in a Downbeat review soon after it was released in the late 60ís. History, however, has proved this to be one of the greatest piano trio recordings of the past fifty years.
This track wasnít included on the initial LP release, but appears on subsequent CD releases. Itís the most beautiful version of this tune Iíve ever heard. Taken more up-tempo than usual, it contains elegant, joyous, interactive playing by Chick, Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes.
