Murley is the composer of a recent release "Extra Time, and he performs with others in the band -- John MacLeod (flugelhorn and trumpet), Dave Restivo (piano), Jim Vivian (bass) and Ted Warren (drums). Each person makes a stellar, if not notable contribution to the album's seven tracks. According Murley's Web site www.mikemurley.com, his "compositions form the bulk of the band's repertoire along with music from some of the tradition's greatest composers (Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter). The group also draws on some selections from the standard repertoire."
From the title track to "Open Segment, "Extra Time, seems to be a fun album, sponsored by the Canada Music Fund and the Music Section of the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as the Popular Music Program of the Ontario Arts Council.
