Daro Behroozi (Alto Saxophone/Bass clarinet), John Murchison (Upright Bass, Gimbri) and Dan Kurfirst (Drumset/Frame Drums) utilize their thorough experience in these musical forms to explore the possibilities of applying approaches learned from the traditions of African American improvisation to an emerging global musical culture.
