Jason Stein - bass clarinet
Jason Roebke - bass
Mike Pride - drums
I'm super excited for this album to come out. It's kind of a new beginning for this band, with more of a focus on stylized composition and improvistion. Roebke and Pride sound amazing. This record is definitely our best work yet.
Stein stands apart from the standard instrumental lineage. Whereas a player like Eric Dolphy or Michel Portal builds on wide intervallic leaps and verticality, Stein (like Michel Pilz, Rudi Mahall or John Tchicai) operates in a horizontal fashion, favoring a breadth of twists and turns more sideways than anything else, woven into a post-Ornette fabric.
(Clifford Allen, All About Jazz)
Stein, Roebke, and Pride fed on the chamber-like intensity of the sparsely intimate space with a brilliantly tight set.
