Nick Fraser releases yet another great record, this eclectic mix of Barnyard Jazz features, "An all-star team of Toronto new-generation improvisors - sophisticated new music with a sense of wobbly fun, big-band-through-the-looking-glass (yet in a different, far less nostalgic way than Carla Bley or, say, Willem Breuker) ...a toronto improv supergroup."
