Open en dark ECM records, with minor production flaws

"If you're waiting for a record to showcase Gary Peacock's technical skills as a bass player, this is not the one to get. His playing is very modest, and almost confined to the background, with the exception of the solo piece that opens the album. Apart from that, it features the typical open, spacy sound of ECM records, with airy solos by Jan Garbarek on sax and Palle Mikkleborg on trumpet. With the dark bass lines of Peacock's, this is an interesting listen. The only remark is that the production is a bit disturbing every now and then, mostly when it comes to trumpet and drums."
