A credit to his leadership capabilities, this is a creative team effort and the whole they achieve together, enhanced by solo improvs from Musillami and and other fronting musicians (especially Chapin, to whom the album is dedicated), provide stimulating listening. This outing is everything you'd expect from such high-caliber musicians.
