In his first release as leader in six years, trumpeter/composer Baikida Carroll masterfully focuses his multi-disciplinary bent into this striking, melodically and harmonically rich pastiche of the creative artist teetering on the high wire of reality. Carroll, considered the quintessential creative musical artist, intersperses freshly painted compositions as well as small group conceptions drawn from his compositions for major theater works, dance and film.
