Veteran drummer Billy Hart’s quartet with saxist Mark Turner, pianist Ethan Iverson and bassist Ben Street is one of the finest working bands on the current jazz landscape. The group’s elegantly shaded originals and ingeniously tweaked standards add up to a strikingly unpredictable take on postbop orthodoxy. Expect some tunes from last year's, One Is the Other, their second compelling ECM full-length and third overall.
