This set is a change of pace for singer Banu Gibson, who is usually heard with her New Orleans Hot Jazz Band.

An impressive new recording by one of the most sought-after new violinists in the downtown scene. Born in California, Jenny moved to New York in 1998. Most recently heard in a variety of contexts with Bill Frisell, Jenny has also graced projects by Myra Melford, Vinicius Cantuaria and Nels Cline. Here she leads a dynamic quintet of violin, trumpet, guitar, bass and drum creating a seductive and personal take on Radical Jewish Culture.

Don Ellis' final record as a leader (he passed away from a bad heart in Dec. 1978) is a worthwhile effort. Ellis' large orchestra (four reeds, eight brass, one keyboard, two bassists, two drummers, two percussionists and a string quartet) performs six of the leader's originals and, although none of the songs are all that memorable, there are many fine solos. The main players are trumpeter Ellis, Ted Nash on tenor, alto and clarient and trombonist Alan Kaplan.
