The Bennie Maupin Ensemble

Furthering Maupin's reputation as one of the finest jazz multi-instrumentalists in the business, this thrilling set of vocal-less jazz proves that minimal doesn't mean barren. Blending subtle rhythms with moody melodies, Penumbra is an album of masterful ambiance and superior peformance.
