    Danny Kamins / Damon Smith / Alvin Fielder / Joe Hertenstein

    These 10 relaxed quartet improvisations move between sound and swing with little effort. Houston has a great improvised music scene, but is light on drummers, Danny Kamins & I found ourselves with two fine percussionists in town at the same time. We had access to a good studio and were able to capture the detail of the music.
    It is a case of four generations of musicians being able to find so much common ground because of different experiences in the music and not in spite of them. It also shows to continued renewal of material from all historical periods of improvised music.
