The high caliber of the playing is often staggering (see the high-energy roller-coaster of a ride that is Dilorenzo's three-and-a-half-minute Go), and the recording also benefits from democratic representation. The trumpeters naturally form a front-line, but Asteria is a recording where trombone, horn, and tuba are as prominently featured; certainly no small amount of credit for that must go to those responsible for the seven pieces' arrangements. One comes away from the release marveling at the performances and the rich, soaring sound generated by the five musicians.
