Says bandleader Glenn Horiuchi of this new album: "The impetus for much of this disc was my interest in re-examining the trio format with which I had begun my recording career (Next Step, Asian Improv AIR-002, 1988). Of course I called upon the talents of Roberto Miranda and Jeanette Wrate, and the resulting session documented here and on Hilltop View (Music & Arts CD 4935) is quite interesting. In the collectively improvised Jump Start, which sets the tone for the rest of the session. Endpoints refers to the points which mark the extremes of a line segment in Euclidean geometry.  Here the piano announces certain phrases (discrete segments), whose endpoints provide some structure to the improvisation."



Glenn Horiuchi has recorded eight discs as leader for the Soulnote and Asian Improv labels and has become somewhat of a cult figure on the new California jazz scene. He has assimilated urban jazz, country blues, atonal energy music and Japanese tonalities into a coherent new idiom.
