Naming this sextet after a three-horned prehistoric dinosaur doesn't mean their musical creations are time-worn or lumbering. Rather, backed by a champion rhythm team-Laura Klein (piano), Alan Hall (drums) and Dan Seamans (bass)-the three-horn front line invades ten better-than-Messenger-like originals, providing captivating moments for listeners. Solo and textural playing by Tony Corman (alto/soprano saxes, flutes), Dave Eshelman (trombone) and Dave Tidball (tenor/soprano saxes, clarinet) confirms this modern-sounding, West Coast crew is no museum piece.
