Review: The current line-up of this stellar octet returns with a two-disc set, with the first a set of original compositions by individual band members, & the second dedicated to innovative arrangements of music penned by Thelonious Monk, Ornette Coleman, & Stevie Wonder arrangements, which manages to cover considerable territory with a compelling and creative blend of reverence and reinvention.
