AllMusic Review by

One of pianist Paul Moer's rare sessions as a leader (a date so obscure as to not even be listed in some discographies), this CD reissue from the Del Fi label features Moer in a trio with bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Frank Butler. Best-known for his brief association with Charles Mingus, Moer plays quite well on ten songs, the majority of which are his compositions. Based on this thoughtful straightahead set alone, Paul Moer deserved much more recognition than he received.
