Album Notes
"A widely and wildly varied collection of traditional big band elements blended with contemporary and visionary sounds"
"...pushing the outer edges of the big band tradition."
"...exemplifies creativity in composition and craftsmanship in the art of arranging...This music is rooted in its heritage while boldly forward looking."
"Listening to Motion Potion I was challenged to think of the last time I heard a big band format feature such individual excellence and ensemble precision. Not even Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Orchestra can claim this degree of freshness, skill and execution."
