Pianist Anthony Davis (who contributed one of the four originals), co-stars with inventive vibraphonist Jay Hoggard on this adventurous set. Dwight Andrews is heard from on bass clarinet, the great Cecil McBee is on bass, and the remainder of the group includes drummer Billy Hart, percussionist Don Moye and Wilson Moorman III on tympani. The lengthy interpretations (ranging from 8½ to 13½ minutes) are episodic and contain more than their share of surprises and atmospheric moments.
