To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Globe Unity Orchestra convened an astonishing group of Europe's finest musicians plus Anthony Braxton! "Pearls" showcases the band's many modes, from the epic title track - which generates noir-ish dramatic tension through unusual groupings - to a passionate rendition of Monk's "Ruby, My Dear." Essential listening
