The first leader album by American jazz bassist Harvie Swartz, who has played with Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Thad Jones, Gil Evans and Lee Konitz, released in 1982. This is the first leader album by Harvie Swartz. This is a sextet album featuring some lesser-known musicians, and although it is not well-known at all, it is a masterpiece without a doubt. From the opening track, A1, a very beautiful and delicate contemporary jazz with high spirituality, A2, an atmospheric deep jazz with mystic soundscapes spreading over the sound field, B1, a thrilling track with Latin/Brazilian flavors, and a beautiful piano by Ben Arnov. B2, in which Arnov's beautiful piano dances as fine-grained particles, is a wonderful performance with a sophisticated worldview that is also reminiscent of ECM.
