"The debut release from the Marc Riordan Quartet, a creative jazz unit that has been refining its sound in front of Chicago audiences since 2009. Featuring Brooklyn based Peter Hanson (alto sax) alongside Chicagoans Marc Riordan (piano), Daniel Thatcher (bass) and Tim Daisy (drums), Binoculars travels a diverse terrain of energy music, free bop, and straight ahead, balancing dissonance and cacophony with swinging, tuneful melody."

"Marc Riordan might have made a name for himself as a drummer, but with Binoculars, he stands in danger of being known as a drummer fourth, after pianist, composer and bandleader. It's a real possibility, because he does those three things all so well."-S. Victor Aaron, SOMETHING ELSE!

"Tim Daisy (percussion) has been an active member of Chicago' s creative music scene since moving there in 1997. He has performed, composed, recorded, and toured with many of the city's celebrated musicians and ensembles, including the Engines, KLANG, the Rempis Percussion Quartet, the Resonance Ensemble, and the Vandermark 5. In addition, Tim maintains an active composing schedule, writing for his own bands (such as Vox Arcana and Group 4-34) as well as contributing music to a number of collaborative projects- including chamber groups, jazz ensembles, dance, and film. He has had the fortunate experience to perform and record with many great improvisers both from around the world, including: Fred Anderson, Jim Baker, Jeb Bishop, Magnus Broo, Xavier Charles, James Falzone, Erik Friedlander, Per-Ake Homlander, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Nate McBride, Joe McPhee, Dave Rempis, Steve Swell, Mikolaj Trzaska, Havard Wiik, Waclaw Zimpel, and Michael Zerang. Besides a regular concert schedule in Chicago, Tim has toured throughout North America and Europe, and has performed at numerous international music festivals."
