​Stay Surprising: Live At The Side Door, which is set for a November release, is saxophonist Mike Casey’s follow-up to last year’s The Sound Of Surprise: Live At The Side Door.

That earlier album has garnered 500,000 streams since February 2017, according to a news release.

Below is the debut of “West End,” the first cut to be released from Casey’s pending album, which will be posted piecemeal through November. It unquestionably springs from a bop lineage, and with contributions from drummer Corey Garcia seems to reference Sonny Rollins’ troupe on Way Out West, if only revved up a bit.

On the upcoming album—which like its predecessor was recorded at the Old Lyme, Connecticut, club—Casey and Garcia are joined by bassist Matt Dwonszyk.

    In 1958, John Coltrane turned 32. He’d just rejoined Miles Davis’ band after a sojourn with Thelonious Monk, and had in the previous year finally freed himself of his addiction to drugs and alcohol.
