If one took over some public square, some urban open space, who would know? A march on City Hall would be inconclusive. . . . The only hope would seem to be to take over the freeways."--Charles W. Moore, late dean of the Yale School of Architecture

Penland Polygon is the apt name of a many-sided quintet led by the drummer Ralph Penland and presented Friday at the Jazz Bakery. With the exception of Robert Hurst III, the fine bass player well known as a member of "The Tonight Show" band, Penland's musicians are relatively unfamiliar, though their talent takes little time to become evident. The front line comprises Charles Moore on trumpet and Gerald Pinter on tenor sax (occasionally soprano).
