On his Criss Cross debut, tenor saxophonist Brice Winston, an integral member of Terence Blanchard's ensembles since 1998, follows his long-time employer's policy of convening a band from the best and brightest of the generation following his, and giving them ample room to feed his imagination through their personal creativity.
Guitarist Mike Moreno, pianist David Virelles, bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Marcus Gilmore join Winston for a stimulating program, comprising five originals notable for their harmonic depth and melodic orientation, as well as two freshly reimagined Wayne Shorter classics, and the standard "I Thought About You".
