Can't help but think that McCullough's hometown of Seattle had some effect on the compositions on this album; great rainy day jazz. Interplay between McCullough's trumpet and Weijters piano is seamless with how they hand the baton back and forth. Should appeal to fans of Mehldau as well as ECM's Jacob Young (among others). Just one of those poignant recordings to end a day on.
Seattle trumpeter Chad McCullough and Antwerp-based pianist Bram Weijters document the unique blend of their compositional and performance style. McCullough's warm lyricism has a great counterpart in Weijters' subtlety and drive, and here, with drummer John Bishop and bassist Chuck Deardorf, the group is captured in a mood-inducing set of music that is uniquely their own.
