I can't get past AAJ reviewer Mark Turner's comment on this song, that Dingman "can also ignite, as in Clear The Rain, with a solo like wildfire, developing slowly and then spreading quickly." It aptly sums up this tune. What starts deceptively as a spooky ballad ignites with growing intensity before concluding with a return to a pacified state, but not as serene as the notes which the song first began. Excellent song from an excellent album. Jazz from the Brooklyn scene.
