"For this date, Robertson's assembled a new ensemble, Herb Robertson's Downtown All-Stars, a group handpicked from the illustrious list of players he's performed with in the past... He knew exactly whom he wanted: 'I was looking for players who are orchestrators on their instruments, players who are very confident and have their own sound. I had a piece in mind and my concept involved trying to get an orchestral architecture to it.' Robertson wrote a new piece for the group: a suite revolving around written themes, full group interplay and subdivisions within the group. Says Robertson: 'The written music was basically to set up improvising sections within the groups. I mapped it all out and tried to make it so it would keep moving.'"-Robert Iannapollo
