Return of the great American jazz trio that delivered the poll-topping "Nothing Ever Was, Anyway" in 1997. Material heard on "Amaryllis" is by turns thoughtful, touching, joyous and viscerally exciting. Some of the songs are well known - almost classics of new jazz - including Crispell's "Rounds", Peacock's "Requiem" and "December Wings, Motian's "Conception Vessel". There are also a number of startlingly effective free improvised ballads. As leader Marilyn Crispell says, "There's a great depth of communication, a rare delicacy. " Interaction between the musicians is exceptional.
