Wherever in the world or in whatever disposition a jazz musician starts their professional journey, he or she must eventually come to grips with creating a personal approach based on technique, imagination and feeling. Ukrainian emigrÃ© composer and bassist Ark Ovrutski likes to say that since age 20 he has been an 'international homeless traveler.' With 44:33, his third album as a leader, Ark has arrived.<br><br>A program of bright melodies, tight ensemble collaboration, individualized solos and firm underlying swing, 44:33 â' titled for its running time -- is an expression of accomplishment and direction from a coterie of players, instigated by a well informed, thoroughly engaged leader. Multi-reedist Michael Thomas, trombonist Michael Dease, pianist David Berkman and drummer Ulysses Owens are all players from the top echelon of New York's abundance of talented jazzers. Ark is pivotal at the band's core, generating material as well as holding everything together. <br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br>1. New Orleans 5:50<br>2. Waltz 7:43<br>3. Up 6:04<br>4.
