Album Notes
In Opening Lines, Chicago improvisers Jason Stein (bass clarinet) and Tim Daisy (percussion) team up with Lexington pianist Raleigh Dailey for an intense set of free improvisations. In their first meeting as a trio, they play with a unity of aesthetic and purpose that is always engaging, passionate, and focused.

Jason Stein is one of the few musicians working today to focus entirely on the bass clarinet as a jazz and improvisational instrument. He studied most notably with Charles Gayle and Milford Graves. In 2005, Stein relocated to Chicago and has since recorded for such labels as Leo, Delmark, Atavistic, 482 Music and Clean Feed. He has performed throughout the US and Europe, including performances in festivals in Lisbon, Cracow, Utrecht, Barcelona, Debreccen and Ljubljana. He has performed with a number of exciting musicians including Michael Moore, Jeff Parker, Oscar Noriega, Rudi Mahall, Ken Vandermark, Rob Mazurek, Jeb Bishop, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Tony Buck, Eric Boren, Kent Kessler, Tobias Delius, Michael Zerang, Peter Brotzmann, and Wilbert DeJoode.

Raleigh Dailey is an internationally recognized pianist, composer, scholar, and educator based in Lexington, KY. Dailey has performed widely throughout the United States, North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and at venues such as the North Sea and Montreux Jazz Festivals. He has performed with artists such as Peter Evans, Sam Rivers, Tom Harrell, Joe Lovano, Howard Levy, Bill Watrous, Lew Soloff, Wycliffe Gordon, Ed Shaughnessy, and Tom Scott. Dailey is very active as a composer; his most recent chamber works are Mirage (for soprano saxophone and piano), Sonata for Conversations for Trombone and Piano, and Essays for Solo Piano. As Associate Professor of Jazz Studies at the University of Kentucky, Dailey currently teaches courses in jazz piano, improvisation, and small and large jazz ensembles.

Tim Daisy is a Chicago based sound artist, percussionist and composer working in the fields of improvised and composed music since 1997. Has performed, recorded, and toured both solo as well as with many acclaimed musicians and ensembles from both the USA and abroad and has worked in a number of different environments including modern dance, film, chamber ensembles, free jazz and improvised music ensembles. He has worked with many creative ensembles and musicians from Chicago and elsewhere including Ken Vandermark, Katherine Young, Elisabeth Harnik, James Falzone, Dave Rempis, Fred Lonberg-holm, Steve Swell, Aram Shelton, Per Ake Holmlander and Mikolaj Trzaska. Daisy owns and operates Relay Records, documenting much of the work he is involved with in both Chicago and abroad, as well as showcasing some of the sounds being made by various experimental/avant garde musicians from both the Chicago scene and beyond.
