Jim Denley - Alto sax
Clayton Thomas - Bass

“Encompassing mini reed squeaks and heavy sul ponticello and sul tasto string pulses, the concentrated rumble of buzzed bass lines is interrupted time and again by concussive tongue-fluttering, key percussion, and lip and tongue osculation. These split tones almost seem to vibrate from the gooseneck itself rather than the mouthpiece or reed and eventually, Thomas’ barrage of shuffled spiccato lines turn to cavern-deep-pitched tremolo vibrations spiced occasionally with Denley’s distant wah-wahs.” ken waxman
