Album Notes
"Featuring Brian Allen on trombone and Reuben Radding on contrabass. This is a particularly strong improvised duo effort, well recorded in a studio in Brooklyn in August of 2005. Reuben Radding is one of our best local bassists and Brian Allen hails from Texas and played here at DMG earlier this year. I like the way this is recorded, the duo sound as if they are right in front of us. Often on the quiet side with those small sounds up close, banging and rubbing the strings of the bass and those indescribable odd sounds that trombone explorers (George Lewis or Jim Staley) often make. These cats seem perfectly matched as they reach for complimentary sounds so often. They can swing for a moment and then twist those notes all over. They can dip into spurts of melody and then let those ghost-like drone-notes hang in the air. Well done, lads, well done. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery

Distinctive duo
I've really enjoyed this CD. Brian and Reuben make some great sounds together. Concise improvisations that are vivid and exploratory. Brian is unlike any other trombone player I've heard and Reuben's one of the most exciting bassists around. As always, Reuben's engineering is fantastic : he gets all these small sounds and details up close in the recording. Truly a fine effort, and one that really grows on you after several listens.
