This rough and tumble outing by comrades Gauci, Tammen, and Carlstedt comes about as a result of Brooklyn's musical cauldron known as the "Bushwick Series". Three improvising musicians, each performing with different bands on the same night, digging each other's music.."I sure could use some of THAT weirdness up in my stuff..". And so it begins, a match made in Bushwick. Buckle up!

Really this album is a masterclass in Hard-Bop, Post-Bop, Spiritual jazz, and soul jazz all wrapped up in a impressively cohesive package.
It pays tribute to those that came before while still keeping an eye to the future/past. A. Trott

So happy to see a new album from this band. I've long been a fan of Mazurek and Parker's work in Tortoise, on top of the CUQ... Anyhow, if you're curious about contemporary jazz, this is a terrific place to start.
