A genre-stretching innovator, Uri Caine has re-imagined and rearranged the music of Bach, Mozart and Mahler. Now Caine and friends do the same for the Hungarian folk music that inspired Béla Bartók and other modern composers, making the songs and sounds totally new, forging fresh and forward jazz.

“Roll over Glenn Gould and tell Gunther Schuller the news. In an era where some still consider the marriage of classical and improv to be little more than an intriguing contrivance, Uri Caine has dreamed up a way to have the two worlds coincide.” –Downbeat
