Acclaimed New York drummer Eisenstadtâs new quartet, featuring Nicole Mitchell (#1 flute, 2014 DownBeat critics poll), Sara Schoenbeck (bassoon) and Mark Dresser (double bass), continues his exploration of unusual instrumentation, taking chamber jazz further in directions suggested by Dolphy, Lateef and the AACM.
