"When I was in college, a friend of mine called this music "space jazz." He meant outer space, of course, but in a different sense, I think Frisell's often haunting guitar work on this recording evokes the open spaces of the American West. Lavano's playing is beautifully expressive here, in a wistful, mysterious sense, and Motian's subdued style makes the trio breathe as one. With the exception of a few wildly energetic pieces, this music floats, drifting along in a dream-world of jazz."
