“…"For the third octet album (all are highly recommended), Murray meets up with quite a talented group of individuals: altoist Henry Threadgill, trumpeter Bobby Bradford, cornetist Butch Morris, trombonist Craig Harris, pianist Curtis Clark, bassist Wilber Morris, and drummer Steve McCall. Their interpretations of four of Murray's originals -- "Murray's Steps," "Sweet Lovely," "Sing Song," and "Flowers for Albert" -- are emotional, adventurous, and exquisite (sometimes all three at the same time).…"”

Reviews

They say...
The octet is perfect for David Murray as an outlet for his writing, a showcase for his compositions, and an inspiring vehicle for his tenor and bass clarinet solos. For the third octet album (all are highly recommended), Murray meets up with quite a talented group of individuals: altoist Henry Threadgill, trumpeter Bobby Bradford, cornetist Butch Morris, trombonist Craig Harris, pianist Curtis Clark, bassist Wilber Morris, and drummer Steve McCall. Their interpretations of four of Murray's originals -- "Murray's Steps," "Sweet Lovely," "Sing Song," and "Flowers for Albert" -- are emotional, adventurous, and exquisite (sometimes all three at the same time).
