Nachoff established his boundary-crossing artistic persona with this groundbreaking set of compositions for string quartet let by Natalie Bonin and jazz trio featuring Mark Helias on bass and drummer Jim Black. Encompassing a wide range in dynamics and atmospheres, the music moves from melancholy and introspective to vibrant and aggressive, but is always exhilarating and imaginative.
