These dudes can play, and they’ve captured their instrumentals in a crisp hi-def way that gives the immediacy of a live-in-studio experience. The sweet, soulful “Speech” and the more involved and challenging “Overtone” showcase the group’s virtuosity. The pianist is smooth and fluid while the bassist is equally adroit. The drummer gets the spotlight in the latter composition, taking it to a hammering climax. Most memorable and crowd-pleasing is “Delusional” which exhibits the trio’s modernist ambitions while also giving us a catchy enough hook to hold onto. On each composition, the music swells and decays with a deft touch, making these recordings a great calling card for live gigs.
