Dave Holland's most notable work with a guitarist in the past was with John Abercrombie, and their collective trio Gateway with drummer Jack DeJohnette. For this set his quartet includes guitarist Kevin Eubanks, along with longtime musical cohorts Steve Coleman on alto saxophone and Marvin "Smitty" Smith on drums. The album opens and closes with compositions by Eubanks.
"Nemesis" is a fairly straightforward post-bop structure that lets everyone strut their wares in fine form. "Color of Mind" is unapologetically funky, and provides a perfect rhythmic bed for Coleman to sail over with glee. Holland's two pieces, "Processional" and "The Oracle" are both subtle and atmospheric, providing a fine contrast to the greater rhythmic density of the other tunes. Coleman, whose been writing a piece or two on most of Holland's albums he appears on, here offers two of his most contrasting numbers. "Black Hole" adheres to his angular and propulsive standards, while "101 Degrees Fahrenheit (Slow Meltdown)" employs mysterious and cinematic dramatics.
