This is a typically flawless trio set from the tasteful and swinging bop-based pianist Tommy Flanagan. With the assistance of bassist Keter Betts and drummer Jimmie Smith on this CD reissue, Flanagan plays his original title cut and jazz originals by Thad Jones ("Bird Song"), Tadd Dameron, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk ("Friday the 13th"), Wes Montgomery and Dizzy Gillespie. If Flanagan had not recorded so many equally rewarding sets during the past 20 years, this fine CD would have received a higher rating; virtually every one of his recordings is well worth picking up.

I have only listened to "Peace." I hear the cut played by Eric Jackson, (Eric in the Evening - WGBH 89.9 - Boston, MA)every night at 7pm local time. Eric NEVER give us the title, or artist. It took some serious research to find the information. This is a piece of music that will quickly move to the top of your personal playlist!!
