Review: Drummer Scolari and his band return with another outstanding set of progressive jazz. The band expands to a quartet, giving it more breadth. Scolari doubles on synth, while keyboardist Cavalca doubles on drums. It’s still a family affair with Scolari’s son on trumpet & Cavalca’s brother on bass
If You Like: The Bad Plus, Mick Rossi, Miles Davis’ electric bands, Joe Zawinul
