The trio captures the spirit of this music, covering several of Shorter's most cherished works and adding their own spirit to make the performance come alive. Z has a unique facility at the piano, capable of communicating both the esoteric and the plainly musical in a single phrase. Her counterparts are equally adept and follow Z's lead through Shorter's often-treacherous progressions with style and grace.
