School Days, Crossing Division (OkkaDisk). More potent international diplomacy, courtesy of [Ken] Vandermark, [Jeb] Bishop and drummer Ingebrigt Håker-Flaten and Paal Nilssen-Love. A cutting, wide-roaming, wide-open effort, the CD pays homage to the early-60’s band of the same name led by Steve Lacy and Roswell Rudd (two of whose pieces are performed here).
