Dmitry Baevsky / Jeb Patton: We Two

Read "We Two" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Alto saxophonist Dmitry Baevsky and pianist Jeb Patton constitute a crackerjack, precision jazz instrument, stretching and bending the fundamentals of bebop into full-blown statements that render the absence of a bassist and drummer superfluous. The individual heroics that one expects of bop are in evidence, but it's the ways in which the duo maneuvers as a ...

Bruce Harris: Beginnings

Read "Beginnings" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Dmitry Baevsky: The Day After

Read "The Day After" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

For those who believe that nothing good can come from contemporary players ...
