The Canadian jazz quartet led by saxophonist Mike Murley and pianist David 
Braid released an album entitled _Mnemosyne's March_ a few years ago:

"Mnemosyne was the mother of the Muses in Greek mythology, who were the 
inspirational goddesses of literature, science and the arts. The 
connection and inspiration is no accident; Braid’s music and music-making 
is studied, inspired, charismatic, exploratory and adventurous."
