The stellar roster of musician-educators from the state’s flagship land-grant research university share a like-minded, post-bop aesthetic. Each player has a distinctive, contemporary improvisational voice and a wealth of international playing experience. This is no derivative jazz sextet. Expect “smart, economical writing and fabulous blowing.” (Marc Myers, JazzWax)
