[Chapin] plays with a beautiful lyricism and respect for the composition. Musillami for his part can burn or play a ballad like 'Emmett Spencer' with complete tranquility.

The wholly original program kicks off with the title track, its unusual half-time, walking tempo setting a tone that hints at the avant-garde. Musillami's tone is trebly, his attack pointed and well-defined.
