Album Notes
Free Jazz trumpet and bass clarinet player Matt Lavelle (William Parker's LHCMO, Eye Contact, Stars Like Fleas) joins free improvising guitarist Barry Chabala on this great set of musical conversations recorded live to two-track in New York City. This set mixes Matt's lyrical but powerful jazz based lines beautifully with Barry's melodic free play.

"Solid as hell! Kudos for its commitment to forging a sense of swing from from even the most disparate fragments" - Signal To Noise Magazine

"The two musicians throw ideas back and forth and converse in the universal language of 'free jazz'. The duo listen closely and work together so well - consistently strong throughout" - Downtown Music Gallery

"Barry Chabala's style combines a strongly lyrical and imaginative melodic sense with fractured rhythms that defy common notions of swing and flow." - Cadence Magazine
