Hitting his stride as one of the finest trumpeters of his generation, Ryan Kisor's third Criss Cross date opts for a bit more adventurous stance.
The piano-less group gets a boost from the addition of famous tenorist Chris Potter to the front line, along with bassist James Genus and drummer Gene Jackson.
Via a set of crafty originals and well-chosen standards, Kisor and crew deliver a contemporary message full of the kind of daring creativity that Kisor and Potter are quickly becoming known for.
