"...a work of true artistic mastery, and generational significance. In many ways, it personifies the direction of jazz music into the 21st century." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ. Disbanding his hard-touring trio in 2000 after a productive decade, pianist Hal Galper returned to 'the shed' to work on concepts that would lead to an indomitable period of innovation that so remarkably occurred a half century into his career. Enabled by his association with bassist Tony Marino and Billy Mintz, Galper pursued a rubato approach to time and movement, documented on "Agents of Change" in 2006, and then through his ground-breaking recordings from the last 15 years with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop. This live recording from 2008 with the Agents of Change trio, reflects a time & place in Galper's career where he was becoming supremely certain with his musical voice and comfortable with his gradual shift to being a member of the rich cultural community in Sullivan County, NY, after decades on the road and in New York City. Now 14 years since this recording, Galper is again performing weekly with Marino & Mintz up near his home in the Catskills.
