Andy Laster's Hydra discography This music is sometimes referred to as "chamber jazz" because of the complex, layered arrangements and the often-slow tempos. The characterization is not entirely accurate, though, as there are also instances of invigorating jazz in a post-bop style. Saxophonist Andy Laster called on his changing quintet, Hydra, and for this recording the group consists of an all-star cast. The most prominent soloist is trumpeter Herb Robertson, whose rubbery and pinched improvisations share the limelight with the leader.
