For us this recording tries to evoke the brooding optimism that accompanies certain points of transition - night into morning, late winter (when we wrote and recorded this music) into spring. and composition into improvisation. Over the last 5 years playing together we have always focused on exploring the formal and textural possibilites that the duo format offers, whether through our own compositions or standards. The flexibility to bounce ideas off each other and choose new paths as we play is what has always driven our personal dynamic, and we hope our engagement in this concept comes across on what will hopefully be one of many recording projects.
