...a marvelously collaborative spirit...the innovative impulse that motivates this colorful project is refreshing.
Downbeat Magazine

One of the preeminent performers in Chicago jazz, saxophonist Shawn Maxwell has released several recordings featuring his quartet or his sonically expanded dectet, "Alliance." With his New Tomorrow group, he augments his working quartet with the singular trumpet voices of three of Chicago's finest ­- Victor Garcia, Chad McCullough and Corey Wilkes - and the inspired and often dazzling vocalist, Dee Alexander,­ for a set of ten modern, electric originals. Focusing on composition as much as improvisation, the quintets reveal stunning melodies hidden within complex time signatures, textures and grooves.
