Softly folding and deeply unctuous brassy ribbons of sound.

About the Album

"Ze Teach" is a track from the insistently inventive composer, arrange, bandleader and educator Ayn Inserto's album "Down A Rabbit Hole." The track is dedicated to her mentor Bob Brookmeyer, who signed off on notes to Inserto as "Ze Teach." The album features The Ayn Inserto Jazz Orchestra with special guests - trumpet star Sean Jones, tenor sax great George Garzone, and trombonist John Fedchock - along with her exceptional cast of players many of whom have been with her since she launched the group in 2001. It's the group's first new album in a decade and reintroduces Inserto's sly and imaginative musical world, a realm populated by some of jazz's most expressive improvisers. Inserto has built a brilliant career around her gift for designing fantastical but slyly logical musical landscapes and crafting sonic adventures marked by sinuously surprising melodies, Technicolor harmonies, and arrestingly vivid voicings.
