In cart Not available Out of stock

Each a leader, pianist Edward Simon and alto saxophonist David Binney, who have worked together on numerous projects since 1989, present their second collaborative effort, comprising eight emotion-packed, rhythmically vibrant tunes by Binney, Simon, and bassist Scott Colley.

Propelled by the extraordinarily nuanced, intuitive playing of Colley and drummer Brian Blade, the instrument-like voice of Luciana Souza, and tonal color from guitarist Adam Rogers and brassmen Shane Endsley, Jesse Newman and Alan Ferber, plus percussionist Pernell Saturnino, the co-leaders solo with rigorous compositional sensibility that only serves to highlight the deep soulfulness and virtuosic chops that make them major forces in 21st century jazz.

Pere is a Latin tune in 5/4 time that is really fun to play. A great opportunity to work on the 5/4 "clave"! I recorded it on Afinidad (Red Records, 2001) and it is featured on Paquito D’Rivera’s Grammy Award winning Funk Tango (Paquito Records, 2007). Parts included: Piano, Alto Sax, Bass, Drums, Percussion (optional) and Trumpet

In the duet format there is no room for error; risks are taken with the knowledge that there is little to hide behind, and the expectation that one's partner simply has to be there without fail at all times.
