Don Cherry (sticking to trumpet) teams up with five European musicians (including pianist Bob Stenson and multi-reedist Lennart Aberg) for a cool and introspective ECM CD. Other than a pair of Ornette Coleman songs ("Race Face" and "What Reason Could I Give"), the music consists of group originals. Although there is not much variety in mood, it is a pleasure to hear Cherry stretching out a bit on trumpet (leaving his flute at home) this late in his career.
