Mnemosyne's March

By Geoff Chapman, The Toronto Star

Saxophonist Mike Murley and pianist David Braid combine their prodigious sills on this mostly-mellow live recording, each contributing three original compositions to the seven-track outing. The leaders get brilliant backing form bass Jim Vivian, whose remarkable solo bowing begins the title piece and the under-stated drumming of Canadian expat Ian Froman, now based in New York. The playing is assure, quietly intense, wonderfully imaginative, intricately propulsive they make complexity sound so easy, proof of the ultra-high standards achieved."
