Chicago musician Shawn Maxwell (alto sax, clarinet, flute) has been recognized for his leadership with his quartet and his dectet. He now augments his group "New Tomorrow" with guest appearances by three of the Windy City's most respected trumpeters: Victor Garcia and Chad McCullough (trumpet, flugelhorn) and Corey Wilkes (trumpet) with each having two or more performances on this release. Other players are Matt Nelson (piano, rhodes), Patrick Mulcahy, Junius Paul and Tim Seisser (trading off on bass), Phil Beale (drums), Stephen Lynerd (vibes), Kalyan Pathak (percussion) and Dee Alexander (vocals on three songs). The music is all original material by Maxwell and the group plays splendidly throughout. There is also a wonderful interaction among the players. Lots of variety and terrific playing!
