With the aid of a powerful telescope and a healthy dose of irony the indefatigable Ms Bley goes looking for the heart and soul of America. New compositions, infected by a "patriotic virus", are played with verve by an almost all-American Big Band. Featured soloists include Gary Valente, Lew Soloff and willing European confederates Andy Sheppard and Wolfgang Puschnig.
