With a sound reminiscent of how it was with Oregon when they were transitioning from Elektra to ECM, this crew has the modern sweet spot well in hand where many things merge into a sound at once familiar but thoroughly it's own. A real treat for those that still remember how it was when you could make music in the marketplace that wasn't required to swing for the fences under a pile of notes. Hey, we know there's always been meddling executive producers, but there was also a lot of pure playing where the playing was the reward itself, for both player and listener. These jazzbos are holding that touchstone. Solidly wonderful, creative left leaning jazz that really gets the blood flowing.
