  • Description

    For his sixth Criss Cross release, trumpeter Alex Sipiagin focuses more heavily on
    his own writing than on 2005's RETURNING (CRISS1270CD). Clearly rooted in the jazz tradition, Sipiagin's compositions continue to evolve his distinctly modernistic approach to harmony, meter and form. The ever-inventive and ever-supportive bassist Scott Colley is back from RETURNING, as is drummer Antonio Sanchez, who continues to demonstrate a remarkable ability to combine elasticity, reponsiveness and groove. Pianist David Kikoski, a longtime collaborator, broadens the textural palette through his use of the Fender Rhodes on selected tracks, while ubiquitous saxophonist Chris Potter adds both passion and elegance.
