Wiesendanger's extended solo piano intro to "Embraceable You" is one of the highlights of the album. The sumptuously demented statement of the melody by the trio is a delight and the interplay between all three reaches a rapturous climax. Stella by Starlight" is given such a spooky reading as the disjointed fragments build to a steady pulse underpinned by Dieter Ulrich's hands on the skins, eventually leading to brilliant brushwork as the song gains momentum. We Concentrate may demand much of its listeners, but it ultimately delivers the goods for those with open ears. Wiesendanger, Weber and Ulrich have managed to combine the free-flowing, contrapuntal soloing of the classic Bill Evans trio, the ecstatic leaps and playfulness of Keith Jarrett's groups and the postmodern hipness of Medeski, Martin & Wood.
