About this Album

Keyboardist Wayne Horvitz’s label debut displays his ability to “improvise, live, in ways that exploit the synthesizer's abstract sounds and timbre,” said the New York Times. He is joined by such downtown compatriots as Bill Frisell and Bobby Previte for a set that “slithers between jazz, rock and downtown classical music.”
