He also covers a few familiar songs, including a dreamy rendition of the standard "My One and Only Love," Miles Davis' 1940s bop vehicle "Milestones" (not to be confused with the song sometimes issued under the same name from the 1950s), and an extended workout of Fred Lacey's "Theme for Ernie" that is reminiscent of Stan Getz. Kuhn is a superb accompanist and soloist throughout the date, while Christensen and Motian also make their presence felt.
