All About Jazz
When producer Mary Ann Topper teamed Petrucciani with Hall in late 1985, it was a truly inspired choice. Hall, the consummate accompanist and thoughtful soloist, is the kind of player who can work with just about anyone and find a way to gracefully inject his own gentle presence. And if the Petrucciani/Hall pairing was inspiration, adding Shorter for the final three pieces of the performance was pure genius. […]

This is an all-star summit that works quite well. Highly recommended. [A video/DVD was also released.] […]

This is my introduction to pianist Michel Petrucciani. I am really impressed with his abilities as an accompanyist. Wayne Shorter certainly plays excellently but the rapport between Petrucciani and guitarist Jim Hall is the best part of Power of Three. […]
