Description:For her second CD following her hiatus and her debut from her new label Verve/Universal, Japanese pianist Junko Onishi returned to New York and reunited with her contemporary jazz musicians who frequently worked with her during the 1990s. The three horn players are the best of the best: Nicholas Payton on trumpet, James Carter on saxes, bass clarinet and flute, and Wycliff Gordon on trombone. The rhythm section consists of bassists Reginald Veal and/or Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Herlin Riley. Roland Guerrero appears on congas on the opening track.

On this ambitious work, Onishi displays not only her formidable skills as pianist but also her unique vision and style as composer and arranger, with profound influences by Jaki Byard, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington. Employing three horns and on three tracks two bassists together, Onishi realizes an expansive and heavy soundscape. Her compositions often shift gears several times to give it a suite-like structure.

The music is powerful, quirky and beautiful at the same time, and the superb bandmates turn in inspired and free-spirited solos. Sometimes they straddle the line between straight-ahead and avant-garde, making the proceedings unpredictable and exciting. Onishi shows her maturity as pianist on two unaccompanied solo pieces. This is seriously stimulating jazz for serious jazz fans. Legendary recording/mixing engineer Jim Anderson helped make it a great-sounding CD, too!

Recorded and mixed by Jim Anderson at Sear Sound, New York City, March 24-29, 2010.
