About the album

On his Criss Cross debut, tenor saxophonist Brice Winston, an integral member of Terence Blanchard's ensembles since 1998, follows his long-time employer's policy of convening a band from the best and brightest of the generation following his, and giving them ample room to feed his imagination through their personal creativity.

Guitarist Mike Moreno, pianist David Virelles, bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Marcus Gilmore join Winston for a stimulating program, comprising five originals notable for their harmonic depth and melodic orientation, as well as two freshly reimagined Wayne Shorter classics, and the standard "I Thought About You."

Mike Moreno

Originally from Houston, Texas, Mike began studying music formally at the Houston High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, a school renowned for its musical alumni, which includes such luminaries as Jason Moran, Robert Glasper, Brian Michael Cox, Eric Harland, Chris Dave, Kendrick Scott, and Beyoncé.  After graduating, Mike moved to New York City with a scholarship to attend the New School University. While still in school he began garnering the recognition necessary to be called to perform and tour with some of the most venerable names in the Jazz world as well as rising stars of the scene.

Composer(s)

David Virelles

Cuban-born pianist David Virelles grew up in a musical home, his father a singer-songwriter and his mother a flutist and music teacher. Even though classically trained at the conservatory, he also heard many types of music in the culturally rich Santiago while growing up. Eventually, Virelles also discovered Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk and Andrew Hill, and started studying the connections between this music and Cuban rhythms. In 2003, David became the first recipient of the Oscar Peterson Prize, presented by Peterson himself. Since his arrival to NYC, he has appeared on live concerts and recordings with musicians as diverse as Steve Coleman, Mark Turner, Henry Threadgill, Andrew Cyrille, Chris Potter, Wadada Leo Smith, Tom Harrell, Milford Graves and Ravi Coltrane. David’s 2012 release Continuum (Pi Recordings) united Andrew Cyrille, Ben Street and Román Díaz....

David’s 2012 release Continuum (Pi Recordings) united Andrew Cyrille, Ben Street and Román Díaz. This album ended on many “Best Of The Year” lists, including The New York Times. Since then, he has released three more albums on the Munich label ECM to critical acclaim, documenting a wide sonic range – Mbóko, Antenna, and his latest Gnosis.
