A good deal of Jim McNeely's recording projects since the mid-'90s involved various large ensembles, so this 2001 trio date provided some variety. The veteran pianist, accompanied by drummer Adam Nussbaum and bassist Lennart Ginman, chose a wide-ranging program, kicking off with a simmering "You and the Night and the Music" that adds a new face to this old chestnut. Lil Armstrong's "Hotter Than That" retains its classic jazz rhythm somewhat, but McNeely's modifications to its chord changes add a definite post-bop flavor as well. "Meiji Stunt" (mislabeled as "Meiji Stomp" on the CD booklet and insert) is a roller coaster reworking of Jule Styne's "Just in Time" that will test the detective skills of the seasoned jazz fan. Nussbaum's imaginative percussion inspires McNeely in his turbulent approach to Thelonious Monk's "Bye Ya." McNeely's powerful ballad "In This Moment" suggests a sorrowful time of reflection. "Danny Boy" is played in waltz time in a more upbeat setting than typical overly sentimental arrangements. This is easily one of Jim McNeely's best recordings with a small group.
