2017 Japanese CD reissue.

In 1996, pianist/composer Geri Allen was awarded the prestigious Jazzpar Prize. She flew to Denmark to pick up the award and performed at a few concerts that were recorded. This CD showcases her at her best. Allen performs two originals (including "Feed the Fire" which eventually becomes Miles Davis' "Dig") in a trio with bassist Palle Danielsson and drummer Lenny White. Veteran trumpeter Johnny Coles (a year before his death) contributes a faltering but heartfelt statement to "Old Folks" and is part of an international nonet (along with Danielsson, White, and five other horns) on the two remaining pieces; the high point is Allen's complex and nearly 19-minute "Some Aspects of Water." Throughout the date, Geri Allen shows why she is one of post-bop's top stars. Highly recommended.
