Compass Digital MP3 Album
Redman calls this album of original tunes ""a further exploration of the trio format ... an expansion on, and an extension of, Back East,"" his acclaimed 2007 trio session. With a ready-for-anything lineup—bassists Larry Grenadier and Reuben Rogers and drummers Brian Blade and Gregory Hutchinson—he stretches the shape of the trio setting, on the most audacious of these tracks, performing with the entire lineup in a double-trio configuration.
