Mark Prince - Fraction of Infinity

Rite of Passage
Abena's Last Stand
The Grind
Friendly Fire
The Healing
Quiet Thoroughfare
Symph. No. 5
August Gratitude

That's what you get with this modern jazz cd. I was surprised at the coolness of it, knowing that it's led by drummer Mark Prince. But he's not a show off at all. He's a part of a greater machine, and knows it, and because of this, the texture of the music is great. "Abena's Last Stand" sounds like a lot of jazz I've heard lately, but that's not a bad thing either.

I don't know if this is fusion or modern or eclectic, so whatever definition you make for yourself and for this music, just know that you're getting something that strays far away from the tune, taking you on a journey of intellectual ambition. Music you Want to like, because it's good for you.
