Reaction and reflection are two elements at the base of the rich interplay triggered by the meeting between the great american pianist Dave Burrell with the double bass player Alessandro Nobile and the drummer Antonio Moncada, two important figures on the Sicilian Jazz scene. The dense and warm music that springs, pulsates with great energy and humanity.
In a strategic and natural alternation between exploratory moments, areas of overwhelming swing and earthly pulsation, the music flows between dialogue and narration throughout the whole of this intense session, recorded in the land of Sicily.
