This is the first outing of Garrick's long-standing trio featuring Dave Green on bass and Alan Jackson on drums. The premiere of The Royal Box Suite is given here with six of its tunes as well as Herbie Hancock's Dolphin Dance and Monk's Round Midnight. Sonny Rollins' Oleo is given outrageously brilliant treatment in Garrick's reharmonisation and piano playing. The beautiful Swallows on the Water is a tribute to altoist Joe Harriott, lyrical and harmonically sophisticated with soaring musical phrases representing the `swallows' of Joe and Dizzy Gillespie when they played together. The MJQ influence is notable on John Lewis' 2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West and the trio's love of standards in Tea for Two and Pete Kelly's Blues.
