    One need only read the three names on top of the record to know what you are in for. This is a Ron Carter record with bass-forward piano trio interpretations, from '77.

    Carter takes the center stage, which is a refreshing change in the spirit of the great Village Vanguard Bill Evans Trio record[one could argue it is a Scott LeFaro feature].

    Herbie's playing is smooth and ever so tasty, but not as adventurous as his own self titled releases. He plays a strong supporting role to the trio. Williams mostly stays bridled, with small bursts of energy popping out at times(solo on B2), then disappearing into the ether.

    The highlight here is "Stella By Starlight"; it's actually a marvelous telling of this classic standard. Hancock does unleash some cascading runs (a la Flight of the Bumblebee) at one point. And it's hard to not love "Dolphin Dance" every time Hancock plays it, this one with an ethereal/spacey head.

    The record is tracked cleanly and mixed well. Carter's acoustic bass has plenty of attack. His amp is miked and sounds meaty. To my ears, the piano sounds a little unnatural, but not distracting.

    3 and 1/2 stars. Recommended.
