Veteran pianist Mark Levine has recorded infrequently, so this trio session is well worth the long wait. His varied program includes a rollicking "Up Jumped Spring," a jaunty version of Duke Ellington's infrequently played "Low Key Lightly," and a luscious "Ask Me Now." The tense title track, written by Mulgrew Miller, will keep listeners transfixed. Levine is also an accomplished composer, with his laid-back Latin-flavored "Linda Chicana" and constantly shifting "After You."
