Here we have Michel Petrucciani debut on OWL is first label (he recorded 6 albums for the label). The rhythm section, one of the best in Europe, features Jean-Fran├žois Jenny-Clark and Aldo Romano.
The great little man is already there in this beautiful session


the pianist at age 18 already a powerful force... and is more heavily influenced here by Bill Evans than he would be later. The trio performs two originals a piece by the pianist and drummer Romano, plus "Days of Wine and Roses" and a romp on "Cherokee." This CD shows that Petrucciani was a brilliant player from the start. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
