About the Album

Paul's bluegrass roots come through strongly on this track. Theyre nicely paired and counterpointed by Karin's high-speed upper-octave dexterity to create an opening duo which gave Jean-Marc and I something to reach for. Its a bit of a bone-rattler, with more than a hint of tradition.

Track Listing

01. die böse; 02. scales and whales; 03. zank (improvisation); 04. Quaker; 05. sus; 06. karibo; 07. beard and pipe; 08. instant helmut: 09. shark guitar; 10. any more toto?

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
