The all-star sextet returns for their fourth Criss Cross release.
A frontline consisting of Eric Alexander's tenor sax,
the trumpet and fluegelhorn of Jim Rotondi,
and trombonist Steve Davis executes the band's arrangements
of original compositions (plus two jazz standards) with élan,
as well as blowing spirited solos.
Stimulating the horns, pianist David Hazeltine, bassist Peter Washington, and Joe Farnsworth on drums comprise a first-class rhythm section that completes the ensemble's unique sound.
