The new release from Chicago bassist/composer Larry Gray, "One Look" by the Larry Gray Trio is a deep, mutifaceted work of original compositions. Gray's strong bass, with equal amounts of arco and pizzicato forms an amazing partnership with Jim Trompeter's forward reaching harmonies and masterful lines and the fiery, inventive and intuitive drumming of Dana Hall. There is a wealth of variety here, ranging from the sublime melody of One Look, to the fiery urgency of Gravity. Two shoter solo bass (arco) improvisations balance the other nine group performances. The CD visits many places but never without a sense of flow and of unity.
