"The band excelled in too many ways to get across in a small space, but here goes: Jefferson's epic compositions have the sprawl of classical music but demand hard-driving groove and hairpin time changes that demand imagination from the players as opposed to sheer precision. All three musicians on Jefferson's front line -- pianist Harold O'Neal, saxophonist Marcus Strickland, and bassist Richie Goods -- covered those bases but in a way where each brought individual personality to the table. As a result, the music sparkled in four dimensions, the way music does when four people truly play as a group.
