Lucian Ban and Elevation


The powerhouse quartet led by a Romania-born pianist return to the room where they recorded their impressive and satisfying new Mystery. A boundless flexibility and willingness to ride the quirks characterizes this fine band filled out by the storytelling saxophonist Abraham Burton, constantly surprising drummer Eric McPherson, and bassist Drew Grass (switched in for John Hébert). They play with the passion and lucidity of longtime friends catching up on epic doings.
