"Superb…immediately gripping…perfectly ultramodern."—New York Times

Alto saxophonist Steve Lehman’s riveting CD Travail, Transformation and Flow with his octet was one of the most acclaimed jazz releases of 2010, high on many critics' best-of-the-year lists. The forward-thinking composer and his octet created a brilliant balance of heady concepts with nimble improvisation, showcasing both subtlety and the bright sparks issued by his ready-for-anything players

Lehman and his talented ensemble create encompassing passages of music that are freewheeling, funky, and artfully fractured with shaded shards of sound. All Music Guide's reviewer called the recording, "music that is astonishing, far beyond convention" and continued, "Lehman constantly reveals layer after layer of fresh and inventive progressive sounds.… Highly recommended, especially as a prime example of new, innovative music."

The Steve Lehman Octet is:

Steve Lehman -- Alto Saxophone
Jonathan Finlayson -- Trumpet
Mark Shim -- Tenor Saxophone
Jacob Garchik -- Trombone
Chris Dingman -- Vibraphone
Jose Davila -- Tuba
Drew Gress -- Bass
