Album Remarks & Appraisals:
For the past 10 years, guitarist/composer Alex Maksymiw has been active on the international improvised jazz scene, both as a leader and as a sideman with many groups. He is well respected for the fresh conception of his music, while at the same time maintaining a link to tradition. In addition to his own bands, Alex has also co-led or played as a sideman in many other groups and ensembles including Dick Oatts (of the Village Vanguard Orchestra), Natalio Sued, Frank Parker, and Amsterdam Jazz Orchestra, to name a few. Alex's band will tour North America and Europe in 2016.
