Mellow opening riffs from sax and trumpet evolve into the theme before the trumpet takes a thoughtful, soulful solo and the opening theme and riffs are restated.
A long, lyrical jazz excursion, beginning with breathy, wistful trumpet, then counterpoint from the sax and wordless scat vocals from the singer, who introduces a bit of restrained drama. The ensemble then rides the haunting theme into the sunset.
Mysterious drones from trumpet, sax and bowed bass evolve into moody, lyrical statements from trumpet and then tenor sax.
A languid, pensive ballad, first carried by the trumpet above an almost subliminal Latin rhythm from the drummer. Later, trumpet and sax lines embrace the melody and intertwine soulfully.
A loping instrumental with a catchy melody and a bright but restrained trumpet solo.
Eerie electronic tones are joined by spacey flute and cornet musings, before bass and percussion enter and lay down a thick, funky sonic carpet, with cornet, flute, vibraphone and fiddle, separately or in combination, contributing to a swirling kaleidoscope of sound.
Cornet, electronics and churning, free-form percussion forms the backbone of this piece before it evolves into a serene meditative dialogue between vibraphone and cornet. The ensemble then re-enters and moves toward a dramatic, polyrhythmic close.
Vibraphone and drums introduce a jaunty, joyous statement from the ensemble, followed by dynamic interplay between flute, cornet, and fiddle, a searing cornet solo, a brief bit of tranquility and gathering of forces, and then a squalling, high octane resolution from the ensemble.
