Incredible reed interplay from the Rova Sax Quartet – still an amazing ensemble after all these years, with a mixture of complex creativity and surprising soul that few other groups of this nature can touch! On a record like this, Rova remind us that there's still plenty of freshness in the sax quartet format, when handled this well – rhythm, melody, and many other sounds coming together beautifully from the horns of Bruce Ackley on tenor and soprano sax, Steve Adams on alto and sopranino sax, Larry Ochs on tenor and sopranino, and Jon Raskin on baritone and alto. The set features a beautiful extended piece titled "Certain Space" – an amazing journey in sound – plus "The Blocks", and "To The Right Of The Blue Wall".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
