Bassist Santi Debriano contributed seven of the nine selections to this set and takes occasional solos but he is also generous in featuring the other players. The exotic and haunting violin of Miri Ben-Ari contrasts well with the more conventional but no less passionate tenor of Abraham Burton while pianist Helio Alves also has plenty of solo space. The interplay between Burton and Ben-Ari on "Liberty Road" is a highpoint as are some of the individual solos, particularly Burton's on "Trance Dance."" The music is post-bop, at times quite melodic, consistently stirring and filled with surprising moments, particularly when the music builds and builds to an intense level. Well worth several listens.
