The distinctive Bolling formula still has plenty of mileage here, this time with a more expansive lyrical bent and no cutesy detours.
However, despite some inspired passages, the yawning, overlong lyrical stretches of "Concertante" and "Ballade" may try the patience of some jazz listeners. Bolling is his usual fleet, chameleonic pianistic self, with Marc Michel bass and Jean-Luc Dayan drums offering discreet, decently swinging support.
