a major recording of music in the tradition of European avant jazz, this band brilliantly navigates the lines separating composition and improvisation. these fine, fine musicians play with rigor, finesse, gusto, humour, poise, dexterity, intellegence and playful glee. there is a wonderful sense of melody and lyricism through out, and the songs are so varied, so rich, and so damned good, that this double disc takes many listens to properly process, and what a treat it is every time.
this is the only thing I own by this group, as far as I can tell (unless I'm missing the correct title of the recording), it is unavailable anywhere. (not real cover)
