There is a wide world of influences in his approach to playing the drums. Sounds, Silences, Spaces, and Gravities prevail.

After playing with Ray Charles from 1988-1990, he came to New York in 1990. He began playing with: Buddy Montgomery, Lou Donaldson, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Avishai Cohen, Jason Lindner, Guillermo Klein y Los Guachos, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Mike Stern, Ben Allison, etc. A few years later he started to play regularly with Danilo Perez in 1998, later in Chick Corea's bands Origin and The New Trio from 1998- 2003; Joshua Redman's Elastic Band 2004 - 2005; the collective group FLY; and recently with The Brad Mehldau Trio 2005 - 2012. As of 2012 he has joined the San Francisco Jazz Collective. He has recorded with almost all of the musicians listed above.

Eddie Henderson is one of today's top and most original jazz trumpet players. Henderson was born in New York City October 26, 1940. Louis Armstrong gave Eddie his first few trumpet lessons at the age of nine. Eddie moved with his family to San Francisco when he was 14 years old. He studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music from 1954 to '56. Around 1956, Miles Davis was guest at Eddie Henderson's home during a black Hawk Jazz Club gig and was impressed with Eddie's ability to perform his famous "Sketches of Spain" without a fluff but encouraged Henderson to seek his own originality. Henderson first got worldwide recognition for his jazz-trumpet playing from the popular recordings he made with Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi group during the early '70s. other jazz perfomers Eddie has played with include Pharoah Sanders, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Johnny Griffin, Slide Hampton, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Max Roach, Jackie McClean, Dexter Gordon, Roy Haynes, Joe Henderson etc. Henderson has been on the faculty at Juilliard School of Music since 2007.

Kevin Hays, an accomplished jazz pianist and composer, has now recorded over a dozen CD's as a leader and has been featured on many recordings as a sideman. His recordings have been listed as among the 'Top 40 Jazz Releases of the Year' by Musician Magazine and praised by The New York Times. In the mid-nineties he began recording for Blue Note Records and made several critically acclaimed CD’s for that label. In addition to recording and touring with his trio (which includes bassist Doug Weiss and drummer Bill Stewart), Kevin has long been considered 'first call' by some of the most prominent and influential musicians in Jazz. These include Sonny Rollins, John Scofield, Benny Golson, Roy Haynes, Chris Potter, Al Foster, Joe Henderson and Joshua Redman.

Jeff Parker is an electric guitarist and sculptor of sonic textures. Since 1990, he has focused on being adaptable in musical environments that are constantly changing; he is an improvising musician. Recognized as one of contemporary music’s most versatile and innovative electric guitarists, his music is characterized by ideas of angularity and logic. He works in a variety of mediums, from jazz to contemporary music, using ideas informed by innovations and trends in both popular and experimental musics. He creates works that explore and exploit the contrary relationships between tradition and technology, improvisation and composition, and the familiar and the abstract. He is a founding member of the critically acclaimed and innovative groups Isotope 217˚ and Chicago Underground, and a longtime member of the band Tortoise.

Larry Grenadier was born in San Francisco in 1966. He began playing bass when he was 11, and as a teenager worked in the Bay area with Joe Henderson, Stan Getz, Bobby Hutcherson among many others. After playing with Gary Burton's band in 1990, he moved to New York City and played in the groups of Betty Carter, Joshua Redman, Danilo Perez, Tom Harrell, Joe Henderson, John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Paul Motian, Charles Lloyd and Brad Mehldau and recorded dozens of albums. Previous ECM credits include the above-mentioned Rava disc and three albums with Charles Lloyd. Enrico Rava recently described Larry’s playing as "present and focused in every moment". Larry is also a member of the collective trio, Fly, along with Mark Turner and Jeff Ballard. Their latest recording, Year Of The Snake, was released in 2012 on ECM.
