The third of three early 90’s collections of guitarist/composer Michael Musillami’s original compositions for larger all-star combos, all featuring the late Thomas Chapin.
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.

Credited with “producing some of today’s finest music within a developing group format,” by AllAboutJazz-New York, guitarist/composer Michael Musillami is considered one of the most vital figures on today’s jazz scene. He has earned critical acclaim for both his work as founder/executive producer at Playscape and his increasingly recognized abilities as a musician and bandleader. Drawing on 20 years of professional experience, his working ensembles (his trio, quartet and octet) feature his unique approach to the guitar, a constant desire to continually evolve and create new music, and a close-knit group of respected veteran musicians he has collaborated with for the last several years.
