… dedicated themselves to exploring an original body of work and developing a distinctive group identity. The result is this very album.

Each of these remarkable young musicians has contributed creative, well developed, and often complex compositions to this recording. Their music is rich in gooves, textured, odd time signatures, and mixed meters, executed with virtuosic ease. All that and great solos too! What will they think of next?
