AllMusic Review by

Pianist John Hicks recorded this trio date with bassist Walter Booker and drummer Idris Muhammad in Tokyo. He tackles Monk's pieces as a soloist; "Ruby My Dear" is lovely yet complex, while "'Round Midnight" is dramatic without overkill. His originals "Inc. 1" and "Avocja" are pulsating post-bop efforts. This is an enjoyable date worth picking up.
