Beautiful large form work from Roscoe Mitchell – the famous saxophonist working here as a composer/conductor, but on music that's based on earlier improvisations created by his trio! The large ensemble has a really compelling blend of instruments – flutes, oboes, French horn, trumpet, trombone, percussion, cello, violins, and live electronics – mixed occasionally with baritone voice, and used with all those sonic sensitivities that have always made Mitchell's music far more than jazz, and even far more than improvised jazz.
