Joining Mueller on his “maiden voyage” recording as a leader are the two premier players of their instruments in jazz and world music – Hancock’s former Miles Davis rhythm section mate Ron Carter, and the iconic Brazilian drummer Portinho, in whose exciting trio the pianist regularly performs. The pair’s participation on the date, contributing engaging solos and a sophisticated rhythmic foundation to the pianist’s original compositions and his interpretations of two Brazilian classics, a bolero, and Carter’s own Einbahnstrasse, is a ringing recognition of their younger colleague’s ever growing stature in the world of music.” – Russ Musto / The New York City Jazz Record
