One of those records where each member is on the top of their playing, improvising together but operating on their own plane, check the guitar and it's doing mad things, focus on the double bass and there's a mean and deep workout and then the drums just skipping and tripping. Wonderful album now on that Audiophile vinyl.

With "daring and visionary spirit", to quote a Downbeat review from the year of
this album's release, master improvisers John Abercrombie, Dave Holland and
Jack DeJohnette forged a unique vision of trio interplay on their frst joint effort
under the Gateway moniker. The trio tackles Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette
originals with a visionary idea of what three- way conversations in jazz could
sound like. As The Observer remarked in an article of the time, "the telepathic
ensemble playing and perfect execution make it difficult to believe that this music
is almost completely improvised". The players' respectively unique instrumental
signatures had already fully crystallised here, hinting at the music to come.
The Luminessence edition of the album arrives in a Tip- on gatefold, complete
with previously unseen archival photos and new liner notes by Wilco's Nels Cline.
"One thing most recordings on the label share in common is the capturing of
special moments in real time. That is what "Gateway" is, what it feels like so
many years later, for as long as we have ears to listen." - Nels Cline
