An acronym built from the players' names -- and also a callback to one of the first common pronunciations of the "jazz" genre -- the title of this album suggests that personal touches will be balanced against traditional moves. So John Hollenbeck's drumming is typically sneaky and complex, for example, but like the Steve Coleman riffs these guys all know and love, the abstract groove-feel is often paramount. Only opener "Recurring Dreams" and "It Began to Be Dark" storm right out of the gate, but tracks like "Water" and "No D" gather steam as they progress.
