Hans Glawischnig on electric bass, Eric Harland on drums and Munyungo Jackson on congas to be released by Mack Avenue in late-August.

Childs, a big infuence on players like Gwilym Simcock who dedicated tracks to him on his recent album Near and Now, won a Grammy for best jazz instrumental album for Rebirth released by the same label Mack Avenue three years ago. Beyond the core album band guests include Elena Pinderhughes on flute; vocalists Alicia Olatuja, Aubrey Johnson and Sara Gazarek; and percussionist Rogerio Boccato.
