AllMusic Review by

Thomas Chapin, who had fairly distinctive tones on alto and flute, is a versatile improviser capable of playing anything from swing to free jazz. His regular trio (with bassist Mario Pavone and drummer Michael Sarin) is joined by a brass quintet (two trumpets, two trombones and the tuba of Marcus Rojas) for a set of adventurous and unpredictable but generally very logical improvisations, often building off of simple ideas. Well worth a few close listens.
