together with a tight three-man backing group is a sublime slice of different facets of jazz. They range from numbers written by Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Charles Mingus, and Dave Brubeck. Greco leaves his stamp on all nine tracks with some extremely impressive playing, and he is equally at home on all his instruments. His modern interpretations of some old favorites and newer material is flawless. If Greco and his group haven't been snapped up by a major US record company then something is terribly wrong, they deserve world-wide exposure. It's a real ear-opener and essential listening.
