Available: May 17, 2011

Trumpeter Alex Sipiagin’s ninth Criss Cross album may be his most conceptually ambitious.
The 43-year-old trumpeter, these days garnering broad international recognition as a solo artist, as well as for his inspired virtuoso playing in various Dave Holland and Mingus Orchestra contexts, offers seven original pieces – performed by a distinguished band of A-listers – that contain heady polyphony, substantial melodies, beautiful voicings, and intoxicating rhythms.
It’s a cutting edge of the 21st century jazz.

The band: Chris Potter, tenor sax and flute; David Binney, alto sax; Craig Taborn, piano and fender rhodes; Boris Kozlov, bass; and Eric Harland, drums.
