In many ways, this is a lost John Tchicai album. It’s a showcase for his formidable talents as a big band leader and arranger – not much seen since his days with Candentia Nova Danica – featuring an impressive group of second-generation German jazz musicians. Tchicai puts the emphasis on ensemble interplay and compositional prowess, creating a remarkable album that deserves a much-wider audience.
