Wayne Krantz: One Of Two

Read "Wayne Krantz: One Of Two" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

Along with its companion piece (the cleverly-titled “Two Of Two"), this solo performance is arguably the first recorded appearance ...

David Lyttle & Phil Robson: IN2

Read "IN2" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The title of drummer David Lyttle and guitarist Phil Robson's debut duo album is as direct and uncluttered as the music contained herein. Equally divided between time-honored standards and stylistically sympathetic originals--three by the Lyttle and one by Robson--the duo's straight-ahead, tradition-grounded language is perhaps a departure from their more genre-fluid work, particularly Lyttle's hip-hop filtered, ...
