Great stuff -- modern jazz based on solid bebop composing and wild solos. Drury, on drums, has fleshed out his sexted with an A-list of downtown New Yorkers including Myra Melford and Eyvind Kang.

Drury often uses violin and sax in unison for a faux-string-quartet feeling, giving some pieces a chamber-music air (see 3 and 6 esp.)

1*- Snappy little groove and kick-ass solos, especially the violin
2- Slow, serious
3*- Fast, madcap cross between bebop and European chamber music. Lots of phases, very cool.
4*- Slow w/rich chords, very nice
5- Mid/fast
6- Lots of chamber segments, mostly slow after a fast start
7- Fast-paced
8- Fast and wacky
9*- Breezy, slows down at first but gets firey
