Review Text Although well known in his native Japan, pianist Masamui "Poo" Kikuchi has not received much attention in America. Kikuchi deserves accolades for not settling for another standard piano trio workout with the usual flashy runs and melody-solo-melody format. Instead, he really delves into the pieces, offering probing voicings and careful pacing, varying moods, timing, and tempo. His treatment of "Misterioso" approximates the quirky embellishments and off-center comping and chording Monk injected into the original, while other numbers have genuine movements rather than being continuous linear presentations. Bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Paul Motian intersect and work alongside Kikuchi, sometimes playing solo but most often meshing and establishing real dialogues rather than individual contrasts. ~ Ron Wynn
