Review: stellar quartet seamlessly blends straight ahead subtle contemporary jazz with wild swings without going too far out. All originals. The polarities of 4 talented musicians are all on display, pushing each other while playing as a unit.
If You Like: Jan Garbarek, Avishai Cohen, Eberhard Weber, Peter Erskine
