- "Strikingly original music...Phenomenally sensitive and expressive...Pellegrin is clearly an artist to watch." -- Earshot Jazz
- All tracks composed by Rich Pellegrin
For his third OA2 recording, composer/pianist Rich Pellegrin presents his decade-old quintet performing five enigmatic compositions - from the raw intensity of “Trial” to the mystical, inscrutable hues of the title cut, “Down” - along with an extended alternate version of “Down,” recorded with a contemporary classical ensemble at the University of Missouri - the Mizzou New Music Ensemble.  Together, eleven diverse musicians create a radiant texture of interweaving lines, extending the vital, collaborative focus for which the band is already known.
