John Goodman, North Shore News, May 21, 1999
New release from Vancouver bass-less trio has the leader on guitar with Brian Harding on trombone and Nick Gaffaney on drums.
Recorded live to two-track last November, the CD features Aldcroft compositions plus a cover of Monk's "Bemsha Swing". Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett, Paul Motian and Dave Douglas are listed as influences but these three also take off into uncharted territory with their unusual line-up.
They give each other lots of space within the group dynamic to get individual ideas across. I put this on and couldn't take it off.
