ENG All About Jazz USA, Glenn Astarita (sep.2003)

Saxophonist David Binney uses electronics as a backdrop for this series of sprightly duets with drummer Jeff Hirshfield. And while the artists tear down the roof on occasion, this is a structured program. Sure, they improvise through a variety of divergent movements, although Binney’s compositions are primarily constructed upon memorable melodies. Nonetheless, it’s a well-thought out production containing nicely balanced freeform excursions and cohesively actualized frameworks.
