|Strikingly adventurous compositions by Henry Threadgill's soulfully original jazz french horn player, Mark Taylor. His all-star group includes New York's highly-acclaimed piano modernist, Myra Melford and David Murray's extraordinarily melodic bassist, Fred Hopkins. The dean of New York jazz percussionists, Warren Smith, provides virtuoso vibes. Steve Berrios, the fiery drummer from Max Roach's M'Boom and the Fort Apache Band, effortless nails down the trickiest rhythms while adding splashes of vivid color. Gorgeous improvised vocalise is added on three pieces by soprano Karen Burke-Simmons.
