This fine effort features pianist Niels Lan Doky and his brother, bassist Christian Minh Doky, being joined by drummer Adam Nussbaum for three trio numbers and, on three other tracks, playing with larger groups also including trumpeter Randy Brecker, tenor saxophonist Bob Berg, and guitarist John Scofield. Almost as impressive as Lan Doky's piano playing are his compositional and arranging talents; all of the songs except "This Is All I Ask" are his. A strong post-bop effort that finds the Doky brothers not being overshadowed by their famous sidemen, a major feat in itself.
