EDITORS’ NOTES

On his debut album, Moscow-based drummer Sasha Mashin embraces the intricate and angular modernism typified by the acclaimed Russian expatriate Alex Sipiagin, whose trumpet and compositions are showcased on the first four tracks. The balance of the program (except the closing track) features the music of London-based alto saxophonist Zhenya Strigalev, who navigates dense harmonies and challenging rhythmic shifts with determined grace. Favoring an expansive electro-acoustic sound, Mashin supplements the core band with brilliant guests who continually change the music’s texture and sonic character.
