Description :Originally active from 1980-1992 and hugely popular in their native New York City, although they never caught their big break, The Microscopic Septet are regarded as one of the most important and unique bands to come out of the New York scene of the 1980s. They entertained audiences with their combination of swing, energy and humour, as well as with their unique compositions and fine musicianship; Downbeat referred to them as '...one of jazz's tightest units....'

The group reformed with the original personnel in 2006. In 2010, the band released Friday The Thirteenth, their unique tribute to one of their original inspirations, Thelonious Monk, an album that sold very well, was widely reviewed and lauded and propelled them to the top of the jazz cognoscenti's consciousness.

But fine as Friday The Thirteenth was, it was a very atypical release, because the Micros feature two of jazz's finest composers in co-leaders Joel Forrester and Phillip Johnston, both of whom contribute songs that feature 'enough great melodies and ideas in each track to make an album' (DownBeat).

Manhattan Moonrise is their 3rd release since reforming and their 7th release overall. Featuring a lineup of a sax quartet (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone) and rhythm section (piano, bass, drums), the Micros have a sound unlike any other ensemble compositionally, ensemble-wise and also in terms of the breadth of their influences.
