Altoist Bob Mover
, who originally sounded quite a bit like Lee Konitz
, fully displays his individuality on this passionate trio set. Accompanied by bassist Rufus Reid
and drummer Bobby Ward
is free to be as explorative as he likes on the high-quality material which includes two originals, a pair of ballads, "Poinciana," and Thelonious Monk
's "Evidence." This is one of Mover
's finest recordings to date.
