Review: Irby is a long-time member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Here he has assembled some of the top players in the field into one group, many of whom lead their own ensembles. Together, they pull from deep roots to create an excitng new sound. Wynton Marsalis guests on #8 & 10. Several original compositions by Irby & members of the band plus some stellar covers.
