Quick anecdote: I spent the summer of '89 in Banff, Canada in their Centre for the Arts, and the heads of the jazz program were: Dave Holland, Steve Coleman, Kevin Eubanks, and Smitty Smith. For a few nights, they played set after amazing set in a 100 seat cafeteria with Molson Canadians going at $2 a pop. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Shortly after that, the quartet recorded this album, and it's a real treat. Kevin plays his a-- off with this ethereal tone and great rhythm patterns in his lines (I'm sure hanging w/Steve for a while helped his playing polyrhythmically). The tunes are acoustic but very funky with odd time signatures and the vibe is just kickin'. Take one listen to "The Oracle", and you'll see what I mean. I haven't followed Kevin too much since his Tonight Show gig started happening, but if you like his playing, I'd consider this a must have.
