A simply beautiful release
by a formidable trio featuring a fitting tribute to Julius Hemphill’s astonishing music. Utterly modern and original, his compositions are here investigated in an unique cornet-tuba-configuration offering very original and resourceful arrangements of some of Hemphill’s trademarks pieces. Along with a liner- note by Alex Cline here is an album you simply can’t miss!
