Downtown New York City avant-garde jazz quartet Lan Xang was formed in 1994 by alto saxophonist Dave Binney (a co-founder of Lost Tribe), tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin (also a member of Steps Ahead), bassist Scott Colley (additionally of the Jim Hall Trio) and drummer Jeff Hirshfield. The group's 1998 self-titled debut album appeared just weeks after their well-received appearance at the Monterey Jazz Festival; Hidden Gardens followed in early 2000.
