"The magnum opus of this session, is "One For Mal," a dedication to the late, great, Mal Waldron. Juxtaposing the Westminster chimes against a squiggly theme of crashing chords and repetitions over contractions and expansions of the time, Moser's solo cycles waves of dissonance with passages of muscled swing. The trio breathes together and Thorsen unleashes a wicked statement that starts off in a glorious out mode and never lets up, Moore answers with patient gestures that build to a gale-force of drum explosions.....This album is a joyous affair that straddles wide arcs of style, while hewing close to a singular aesthetic."

Track Name: For My Mother
How I Speak
(For Diane Moser)

So this is how I speak,
White and black keys
articulating my story
ascending rhythms,
notes rising to my mother,
the woman who raised me,
loved me and heard
my plea for a piano,
placed in a small space,
to become my
intimate roommate,
my playmate, my companion,
my confessor and my communicator.

Like Morse, I tap out my code,
creating harmonic messages
that pulse from my fingers,
conveyed on air, vibrating
through space and time
to say what needs to be said.

– Marilyn Mohr, July 30, 2005
