Crump, Stephan / James Carney: Echo Run Pry (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"If you still think there's an untraversable frontier between the so-called mainstream and the so-called avant-garde, it's because you're not noticing what's going on. And what's going on is well represented by James Carney and Stephan Crump, musicians who developed in admiration and assimilation of numerous musical languages and who are always combining the tradition with the invention of "the jazz to come".

The listener can easily hear such inclusiveness on this particular recording, which could be described simply as "composition created in the moment." The pianist Carney's collaborations with such varied musicians as Ravi Coltrane and Nels Cline, and his current septet with the equal-minded players Tony Malaby, Peter Epstein, Ralph Alessi, Josh Roseman, Chris Lightcap and Mark Ferber, make him one of the most notable of this new front of performers who find in the past the bricks to build the future.

We have to say the same about the bassist of this duo: Crump is indifferent to styles and tendencies, as evidenced by his own all-string Rosetta Trio as well as his membership in the Vijay Iyer Trio, Jim Campilongo Electric Trio, Jen Chapin Trio, Liberty Ellman Quartet, Rez Abbasi Acoustic Quartet and another duo project with saxophonist Steve Lehman.

This project's genesis took place after a couple of quartet sessions at Carney's loft apartment in Brooklyn; on a third occasion they decided to play duo, and Crump brought along his mobile recording equipment to capture these two unedited performances. Give a listen and turn yourself on with this new and very welcomed reality."-Clean Feed Records
