This is the third release by the Ensemble 5 led by the Swiss drummer Heinz Geisser. His special guest for this recording is the Philadelphia tenor sax powerhouse, flutist and poet Elliott Levin. With double bassist Fridolin Blumer, pianist Reto Staub and trombonist Robert Morgenthaler providing an exciting mix of freebop amid a sense of urgency, the musicians also underscore these vibrant activities with a lighthearted modus operandi along with their conspicuous attention to detail.
