Bass – Ron Carter

Guitar – Attila Zoller

Most of Hungarian guitarist Attila Zoller's early recordings have not been made available in the United States, but fortunately his two 1979 Enja releases were leased domestically by Inner City, allowing Americans an opportunity to hear Zoller's unique sound. Like his countrymate Gabor Szabo, Zoller (who has a much more introverted style) uses aspects of his Hungarian folk heritage in his music while playing creative jazz. This quiet trio date with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Joe Chambers (which is comprised of four Zoller originals plus a tune from tenorman Bobby Jones) is a good example of Zoller's subtle improvising style.
