Fiona's Comments

Not sure any musician embodies the spirit of jazz exploration more these days than Cuong Vu. This free improv tune should appeal to avant-garde fans as well as those who enjoy Miles's fusion period. Jazz from the Seattle scene.

About the Album

After a decade of recordings featuring only his original compositions, the master trumpeter and his band now turn their attention to the standard jazz repertoire, presenting decidedly unique interpretations of classics such as "Body & Soul" and "My Funny Valentine", along with songs by George Harrison and Jackson Browne. Ted Poor (drums), Stomu Takeishi (bass), Luke Bergman (Bass), Cuong Vu (trumpet).
