Alpiar, now based in Atlanta, has also put together a new group called 800 Giants, described on his website as a "Brazilian, Americana/Roots, Free-jazz fusion instrumental band mixing a unique blend of concepts and styles to create an exquisite pallete [sic] of sounds." The band's debut album is scheduled for release this spring. If it is as good as The Jazz Expression, it's something to look forward to. I imagine if a CD arrives in the mail, I won't be letting it sit around unheard for any length of time.
"A sinister cabal of superior writers."
