ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

The second 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.


The expansion to a sextet adds shadings to Musillami’s writing. Brecker can run the voodoo down or play sweet. These tracks feature arrangements that have the feel they could have been written for a much larger band. Besides the tight ensemble sound, solos are taken with economy, keeping them interesting.
