John Goodman, North Shore News, May 21, 1999
New release from Vancouver bass-less trio has the leader on guitar with
Brian Harding on trombone and Nick Gaffaney on drums.
Recorded live to two-track last November, the
CD features Aldcroft compositions plus a cover of Monk's "Bemsha
Swing". Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett, Paul Motian and Dave Douglas are
listed as influences but these three also take off into uncharted
territory with their unusual line-up.
They give each other lots of space within the
group dynamic to get individual ideas across. I put this on and
couldn't take it off.
