What does adding another 25 minutes contribute to our perception of the music? We could say it offers a more encyclopedic picture of the material’s potential…including much new horn writing beautifully realized by Darnell Linwood…but it wouldn’t embrace what is most remarkable about the expansion…Listen to Dérive II, 2007, and you know that there is no limit to “continual expansion.” You’ve had a glimpse of infinity, and lo and behold, it’s a nice place to be.” – Elissa Poole OPUS
