Flights of Fancy: Trio Fascination Edition Two

Flights of Fancy: Trio Fascination: Edition Two is an album by the American jazz saxophonist Joe Lovano recorded in 2000 and released on the Blue Note label.[1] The album is a sequel to Lovano's Trio Fascination: Edition One (1998) but, unlike the earlier album which featured a conventional sax-bass-drums lineup, Edition Two finds Lovano shifting between four different and often eclectic trio configurations.

The Allmusic review by David R. Adler awarded the album 4 stars stating: "Taking the trio concept beyond the traditional confines of horn, bass, and drums, Lovano takes a left turn and colors this album with continually changing instrumentation... Fans looking for more of the hard-driving, free-spirited swing of the first Trio Fascination record will find it here in smaller doses. And those who got their first taste of Lovano with 2000's neo-bop nonet record 52nd Street Themes ought to be prepared for something very different".[2]
