Enrico Pieranunzi is one of the most recognized jazz pianists in Europe, but he doesn't get enough exposure in the United States, since he has recorded almost exclusively for European-based labels. These sessions are a bit unusual since the pianist omits a bass player, utilizing only veteran drummer Paul Motian, with saxophonist Chris Potter guesting on three tracks. All of Pieranunzi's compositions were written specifically for these studio sessions, while "Double Excursion" consists of three separate improvisations, all of which sizzle. Potter's tenor sax is added for the mournful "Doorways," with Motian's drumming providing a bit of tension. "Blue Evening" is in the same mold, though with Potter sitting it out. Potter returns for the turbocharged "Anecdote," which dabbles in the avant-garde. None of this music can be fairly evaluated with just a single hearing, though anyone who is familiar with these musicians should take the time to do so.
