“A smoking straight ahead date that is pure fun…one can only hope that there’s more of the same in the offing. Hot stuff.” – Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“If anyone still needs convincing that outstanding jazz players live and work in places other than on the East and West Coasts, they should check out Denver-based Keith Oxman… an excellent improviser with a fine sound, agile technique and sure harmonic sense. He also exhibits a thorough knowledge of the hard bop language and can swing like crazy.” – David Franklin, JazzTimes
“Morelli coaxed the most exquisite tones from his instrument. They were at times husky, gruff and growling, and at others sweet and soaring across three octaves, but always mellow and elegant, like a fine, mature red Burgundy.” – John Farnworth, The Register Guardian
On the album, tenor saxophonist Oxman and bassoon virtuoso Morelli, accompanied by pianist Jeff Jenkins, bassist Ken Walker, and drummer Todd Reid, find unique common ground as jazz meets classical. The two gifted instrumentalists turn the novel conjunction of two strange bedfellows into an intoxicating sound and a charming conversation between like-minded souls.
