AllMusic Review by

Connie Crothers' debut as a leader finds her playing four fairly free piano solos and performing six tunes in a trio with bassist Joe Solomon and drummer Roger Mancuso. It is ironic that Lennie Tristano is quoted in the liner notes as calling Crothers the most original musician he has worked with for at this early point; Crothers sounded like a close relative of Tristano's. She does show some of her own musical personality in spots, and the music (eight of her originals, plus "My Old Flame" and "All the Things You Are") holds one's interest.
