A remarkably advanced debut from the then 21-year-old trumpeter. Joined by tenor saxophonist Ari Ambrose, bassist Joe Martin, and drummer John Wilson, Leonhart tends toward a spacious, enigmatic sound on this all-original outing. The first three tracks are fairly cryptic, with Leonhart and Ambrose playing long-tone melodies over subtly implied rhythms and ambiguous harmonies or pedal points.Leonhart's precocious ability to make music this bold and individual within a standard quartet format is remarkable.
