  • Description

    If you have been following saxophonist Chris Byars' career on this label, you will realise this is his fourth album with this unique sextet of four horns, bass and drums without chord instrument. Byars' adept ensemble writing skills provide one-of-a-kind harmony source to the band.

    "Because he knows his musicians so well, Byars is masterful in his writing, blending the reeds and trombone in intricate ensembles while letting the soloists all shine throughout." - Ken Dryden, The New York City Jazz Records
