“It’s one thing to to play with distinction with Gil Evans, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and Jan Garbarek, as the colourist and kicker Mazur has done. It’s another thing to put together a world-ranging group – what Mazur calls a “visionary dream band” – and to inspire that group to come up with some of the most stimulating, rhythmically vibrant yet poetically intimate music of the past few decades.”
