Cerebral, sharp-edged jazz led by drummer Doug Hammond, and fleshed out with two alto saxes, a bit of flute and piano, and cello. Dissonant solos and intricate, asymmetrical rhythms abound, but there's a sense of playfulness that keeps it from feeling too harsh. Not sure how an album of this caliber managed to slip through the cracks, but at least us nerds are here to catch it.
