This is Dan Karlsberg's 3rd album as leader. For this project Dan put together a group of his mentors to perform his music in a traditional jazz sextet setting. The music on the other hand is not always so traditional. Featured songs include arrangements of Miles Davis's "Freddie Freeloader", and Maurice Ravel's piano piece "Pavane for Sleeping Beauty", along with a new reworking of Stephen Foster's "Oh! Susanna" The music also includes several origianl compositions by Dan as well.
