Another large ensemble posing as a big band is this collaboration between baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington and trumpeter Paul Tynan. Playing tunes by one or the other, they join 12 other horn and woodwind artists, a piano and rhythm section in straight ahead excursions that amble off into realms of expanding consciousness.
The baritone solo on "I Remember Every Day" leads into multifaceted overviews of moments in time that have Zappalike musical purity. Lington's "Four Taiwanese Folk Melodies" shows of a more traditional big band approach, but is gloriously tonally askew, and has changes that elevate the whole composition. My favorite tune is "More Than Just A Single Road", which is an apt description of this project in general.
