About the Album

"The Call" features legendary saxophonist Gary Bartz. Featuring three Mile Davis alumni, an Afrofuturist, and a Headhunter (Gary Bartz, Dave Liebman, Bill Evans, Idris Ackamoor and Mike Clark) "The innovative 12-part “soundtrack” inspired by Joseph Campbell's Monomyth/The Hero's Journey is thought-provoking, colorful, and filled with musical surprises." - Scott Yanow Rovi/All Music
