A magical quartet materialized on this evening. Full of the spirit of adventure, every musician tuned in, listening deeply to one another. No wasted energy or ego-driven forays with this set. Nakatani and Bates have played together in multiple settings for the past 15 years but have never released anything. Here they interface ably with Hanson and Ophoven-Baldwin in two rich segments of textural improvisations.
