This New York–based jazz quartet takes a spin in Chicago. Saxophonist Angelika Niescier, pianist Denman Maroney and drummer Andrew Drury are led by bassist James Ilgenfritz. The foursome squeezes unexpected, minimalist sounds from a rather trad arrangement, with Drury scraping and fingering the skins of his snare. The result is modernism wrapped in the warm skin of Monk's time.
