From deep in the woods of Vermont come a hearty band of musical
explorers. who infuse the influences of sixties Miles, Steve Lacy, Sun
Ra, Herbie Nichols and the Art Ensemble with a lovely sense of
tranquility. Surprising skill and intensity, and a crackling arrangement
of Leonard Bernstein's "America," from West Side Story.
"A phenomenal disc."
