If those words suggest to you the spirited use of counterpoint and dynamic interplay, then listen to Kit Downes’ duet with Tim Giles on Stan Sulzmann’s Nepapanees. Did ‘chamber jazz’ ever sound that down-home or funky? Or listen to Jim Hart’s delightful, melancholy rubato ballad, The Last Of The Leaves, and hear how Hart’s vibes and Giles’ drums connect in such amazing, yet subtle patterns.
‘The Quartet’s use of counterpoint, its rhythmic flexibility, imaginative interplay and lyrical and inventive soloing combine improvisation with a scrupulous attention to detail without compromising the organic development of each performance’. – Irish Times
