AllMusic Review by 

For a time in the early 1990s, some of the CDs from the Japanese DIW label were made available domestically through Columbia. This trio date by pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Ron Carter and drummerJack DeJohnette has Mabern originals dedicated to Sonny Stitt and Wayne Shorter, plus some offbeat standards and a pair of rarely performed John Coltrane tunes ("Straight Street" and "Crescent").

He closes the set with a piano solo that he titled "Apab and Others," after Art TatumPhineas NewbornAhmad Jamal and Bud Powell. This will be a difficult CD to find.
