The SF Jazz collective is a septet here, not the usual octet formation – and they play with a really strong all-star lineup that maybe makes for some darker corners than usual! The group lead off with the compositions of McCoy Tyner, often given very fresh arrangements, and mix in a range of their own originals too – handled by a lineup that includes Dave Douglas on trumpet, Joe Lovano
on tenor, Renee Rosnes on piano, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Matt Penman on bass, and Eric Harland on drums. You can definitely hear the influence of Douglas and Lovano
on the sound, especially at this point in their careers – and titles include "Aisha", "Fly With The Wind", "Three Flowers", "Sycamore", "Yes We Can/
Victory Dance", "Migrations", "Consensus", and "Four By Five".
