For their third offering, Mokave continues to bring music from jazz and world folk perspectives that bend strict labelling. It's Mokave's unique sound borne from the always deft and elegant bass playing of Glen Moore, the melodic, tranquil musings of pianist Larry Karush, and the frame drumming and percussion work of the ever worldly Glen Velez. In their simplest, stripped down compositions, Karush takes the lead through delicate traipsings as during John Abercrombie's "Parable," the folkish lyricism and loping tick tock pace of "Country," or the light boppish paen to Bill Evans via Scott LaFaro's "Gloria's Step."

If Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians is simply described in terms of its materials and organization – 11 chords followed by 11 pieces built on those chords – then it might seem utterly dry and monotonous. The actual music, though, is far from lackluster. When this recording was released in 1978, the impact on the new music scene was immediate and overwhelming. Anyone who saw potential in minimalism and had hoped for a major breakthrough piece found it here. The beauty of its pulsing added-note harmonies and the sustained power and precision of the performance were the music's salient features; and instead of the sterile, electronic sound usually associated with minimalism, the music's warm resonance was a welcome change. Yet repeated listening brought out a subtle and important shift in Reich's conception: the patterns were no longer static repetitions moving in and out of phase with each other, but were now flexible units that grew organically and changed incrementally over the course of the work.
