Review: This disc is the dynamic result of collaborative musical experiments in rhythm, feel and composition by drummer Miller and pianist Staaf. Their shared sensibilities and lockstep rapport are borne out in fine detail. Trumpet player Ambrose Akinmusire and tenor saxophone player Dayna Stephens joined the project through the Stanford Jazz Workshop, and sit in on some tracks
