Chris Cheek on "Lost Ocean"

Chris Cheek
A very well structured, balanced and beautiful improvisation by Chris Cheek on soprano sax.
The song is "Lost Ocean" by the late Mercedes Rossy, Spanish pianist and composer ( Jordy Rossy's sister ) whose life was cut short too early.
The chord progression on the A section implies some major 3rd relations  - sometimes disguised, sometimes explicit , with a pedal point on B section, which contributes to the overall   balance and beauty of the song.
Great solos by everyone. 
Chris Cheek solo is a study on contention, balance, harmonic color, great voice leading and rhytmic contrast.
Soprano sax suits beautifully the mood of the song.
Enjoy.
