The new recording from this highly accomplished octet features six originals, as well as classics such as the Beatles' We Can Work it Out" and "I Got Rhythm" by George and Ira Gershwin; however, expect the unexpected! The Beatles classic is delivered as a percussive rave-up, "I Got Rhythm" is seamlessly blended with "Accentuate the Positive", creating a melange altogether new. Fans of sophisticated vocal jazz such as Manhattan Transfer will feel right at home with this group and their approach, and appreciate their technical derring-do. Other songs included are "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and the haunting original, "Berceuse", which suggests the modal inflection of church hymns and chants.
