"Three pianists -- Cecil Taylor, Marilyn Crispell and Paul Plimley -- and an alto saxist -- John Oswald -- gathered to play, in a triple-header that meandered blissfully and chaotically, and showed us a vision of measured abandon. Freedom rang out, amidst floating bits of structure and melody, and it also stretched out over three hours. Obviously, an intensely personal expression is involved in the work of solo improvisers on this high of an order. Yet there is also a negation of the usual musical hierarchies, which makes this music so brimming with a kind of idealism, unveiled in very real time."
