THE MICROSCOPIC SEPTET is widely agreed to be one of the most important and unique bands to come out of the New York downtown scene of the 1980s and 1990s. Co-led by soprano saxophonist Phillip Johnston and pianist Joel Forrester, who also are the band's principal composers/arrangers, the band entertains audiences with its unusual combination of swing, energy, and humor, recently described by Downbeat Magazine as seminal, brilliant post-modern jazz.
