Fiona's Comments

Not sure any musician embodies the spirit of jazz exploration more these days than Cuong Vu. This free improv tune should appeal to avant-garde fans as well as those who enjoy Miles's fusion period. Jazz from the Seattle scene.

Ted Poor (drums), Stomu Takeishi (bass), Luke Bergman (Bass), Cuong Vu (trumpet).
