Don't expect ATCQ and you'll enjoy the vibe for what it is. Their projects usually have vocal features prominently but this straight-jazz entry holds its own without vocals and doesn't get too boring.
Kudos to Ali and Adrian. Lovely, chilled intro to their jazz event and production project.

Following a series of shows with Roy Ayers, Brian Jackson and Gary Bartz they went to Brazil to speak to João Donato, Azymuth and Marcos Valle and invite them over to LA. The live shows were only half the deal and they've apparently recorded full-length albums with all those people at Adrian's studio. So more to come... this is just a taster.
