Gaetano Liguori with Andrew Cyrille, Guido Mazzon

When We Were Kings contains four tracks credited to pianist Gaetano Liguori that are loosely based on certain aspects of boxer Muhammad Ali's life. The title track starts with a Cecil-like energy and a focus on pitch areas that many 'free jazz' piano players overlook. Both trumpet and drums offer musical counterpoint to one another, Cyrille's playing extroverted but dynamically flexible and melodic in the way that Max Roach pioneered. The highlight of the album, "Svolazza... , has a gorgeous, lyrical beginning with piano in ballad mode and trumpet playing a simple, plaintive melody.    (allaboutjazz.com)
