A first-class modern jazz orchestra, not in New York or LA but, perhaps surprisingly, Chicago. This 17-piece band of young professionals has everything - drive, precision, excellent soloists and the kind of ferocity in its approach that only comes with the flush of youth. Eight of the 11 numbers are originals by band members, and they really are original, too, sometimes startlingly so. Outstanding among the soloists are Marquis Hill, 2014 Thelonious Monk Competition winner, and co-leaders Ken Partyka (Alto) and Andy Baker (Trombone). Available on CD or as download from amazon UK, also on itunes.
