Formerly released on Inner City records in 1979, Richard Sussman's Post Bop masterpiece Free Fall languished for several years before being revived by Jamey Aebersold and Double Time Jazz Records. It is odd that as fine a recording as this is, Sussman recorded only once more for Inner City Records ( Tributaries, 1980). It is a pity, because this maiden voyage smacks of subtle brilliance. Sussman was savvy enough to bring on board a young and healthy Tom Harrell, virile Jerry Bergonzi, and a cerebral Larry Schneider
When pianist/composer Richard Sussman’s extraordinary debut album Free Fall was first released over 30 years ago, it quickly became a classic. Originally issued on Inner City Records, Free Fall not only received wide critical acclaim, but also served as inspiration to a generation of young musicians.

Pianist Richard Sussman led a quintet in the late 1970s and made one record (Free Fall) for Inner City, though after going to Europe for a time, he was unable to land another record deal as a leader. After years of working in a supporting role by touring with various pop and rock acts, along with the occasional jazz gig and teaching at the Manhattan School of Music, Sussman was able to reunite his quintet for some dates in 2003, when this CD was recorded at Sweet Rhythm in New York City.
