Comprised of three masters spanning two generations, Options features long-time collaborators, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Nasheet Waits, joined by legendary multi-reedist Bennie Maupin. Maupin is perhaps best known for his atmospheric bass clarinet playing on Miles Davis’ classic Bitches Brew album, as well as other Miles Davis recordings. He was a founding member of Herbie Hancock’s seminal band The Headhunters, as well as a performer and composer in Hancock’s influential Mwandishi band. Born in 1940, Maupin started playing clarinet, later adding saxophone, flute and, most notably, the bass clarinet to his formidable arsenal of woodwind instruments. Upon moving to New York in 1962, he freelanced with groups led by Marion Brown, Pharoah Saunders, and Chick Corea, and played regularly with Roy Haynes and Horace Silver leading to a legendary career of collaborations with McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Jack DeJohnette, Eddie Henderson, and Woody Shaw to name only a few.
