Rare 1981 Original. Arild Andersen, Bass; Steve Dobrogosz, Piano; Kenny Wheeler, Fluegelhorn & Cornet; Paul Motian, Drums. Cuts Are: "Cameron," "Prelude," "Landloper," "Predawn," "Dear Kenny,"" "A Song I Used To Play," "Liflelines" And "Anew." Appears Glossy, Unplayed. After An Explosive Introduction, Arild Andersen’s Lifelines Kicks Us Like A Soccer Ball Down The Field Of “Cameron,” Where We Are Intercepted By Steve Dobrogosz’s Swirling Keys. Into This Hammered Storm, Andersen Drops His Bass, Keeping Us Centered In This Staggering Opener. And Staggering This Album Most Certainly Is, Resting On A Fine Edge Of Airtight Cohesion And Loosened Seams. We Find More Of The Same In The Loveliness Of “Dear Kenny” And In “A Song I Used To Play,” Both Teetering On A Line Drawn To Andersen’s Careful Scale. Even The Ballads Seem To Flirt With A Great Precipice. Falling From The Haloed Clouds Of “Prelude” And Into The Depths Of The Two-Part Title Piece, We Find Ourselves Smack Dab In Enrico Rava Territory. The Album’s Highlight Comes In The Form Of “Landloper,” A 50-Second Bass Solo That Sparks The Inner Fire Of “Predawn.” In Keeping With His Penchant For Optimistic Endings, Andersen Gives Us “Anew.” Paul Motian Is Delightfully Frenetic Here And Matched By Dobrogosz’s Erratic Song, Veiled Only By The Sustain Pedal’s Illusory Veneer.
