The highly refined and sensitive drummer Tomas Fujiwara leads a quintet that marries postbop elegance to propulsive groove and subtle abstraction. The band's diverse and satisfying latest, 2012's The Air Is Different, juxtaposed lush arrangements with edgy improv flights by saxist Brian Settles and guitarist Mary Halvorson; here, the group previews material from its upcoming third LP.
