This intriguing set matches Hamiet Bluiett (who is heard on baritone sax, contra alto clarinet, and flute) with pianist/keyboardist D.D. Jackson and the African singer/percussionist Mor Thiam. Although Bluiett plays well (and much more melodically than usual), Jackson is the main star of this set, often setting the moods and the grooves. Thiam's singing is a bit of an acquired taste but fairly harmless and he adds variety to the music, which is comprised of originals by the three participants. An interesting if not essential project.
