Something is left to be desired for this album, and you'll catch it upon first hearing of the introducing track Toutes directions - that something is definitely missing. Then, it'll immediately be clear that something is the piano. Without the piano's dynamic range, the album imparts a mellow undertone, which is made more prominent by the constant humming of the flute/alto flute by Marianne Spang-Hanssen. The piano is needed to balance out the flute and invigorates particularly the climatic passages - just compare this album to the subsequent "Power Tree" which came about 10 years later and you'll see what a night and day difference it makes when Baptiste Trotignon is on the piano when performing the same work "Toutes directions". The treatment of "Flying Bridge" is similarly quite soft due to the lack of piano, and here it sounds similar to the rendition in the album "Slaughter on 10th Avenue", released 5 years later featuring a bass-cello-soprano trio.

However, it is a different sound indeed, and it requires more attentive listening to fully appreciate the nuances. I would give the album a 4 star.
