CD Presentation: The Dangerous Lab

Chameleon Changes was founded in 2001 by Vienna-based composer Marcus Ratka, musical standouts such as saxophonist Herwig Gradischnig, pianist Oliver Kent and drummer Mario Gonzi reunited last year to record a new Chameleon Changes album.

It is an impressive tribute to pianist Thelonious Monk, an icon of modern jazz. With breezy energy, it is subversive-sounding jazz which both roars and swings.
