Album Notes
"Friedlander has quickly established himself as a potential innovator, playing with the ease and swing of a wind instrument player. Even more importantly, he has brought a cutting edge, imaginative sensibility to his music, refusing to be restricted by the blues and standards of much straight-ahead jazz." Don Heckman, The Los Angeles Times

The first CD I made with this fantastic quartet. It began a 10-year run of countless concerts and 4 CD's.

Erik Friedlander, cello; Andy Laster, saxophone; Stomu Takeishi, electric bass; Satoshi Takeishi, percussion.
