John Law has developed into one of Europe's most adventurous pianists, his originality evident in a series of projects that has ranged from the furious quartet embroilments of Exploded on Impact (Slam) to the sombrely discursive solo Talitha Cumi (FMR). The Onliest, a Monk tribute, is arguably his best work yet, his versatility as a player confirmed by the percussive Evidence, and the delicate shadings of Ask Me Now. Better still, the disc shows Law to be an astute thinker: he reinvents Bemsha Swing as a round and embroiders Ruby My Dear with prepared piano. Fine support too from Tim Wells and Paul Clarvis.
