This recording by Denny Zeitlin’s current trio has “The Night Has a Thousand Eyes” at its core. However, Zeitlin has extensively augmented the structure with open vamps (including one in 7/4 time) and an entended section of free improvisation. As Zeitlin explains: [It] typifies the way this trio can function as a single organism, patiently and collaboratively developing and working with brand new material in a compositional way. The result is as musical and inventive as one would expect of musicians of this caliber. ’Nuff said.
