Crump, Stephan - Mary Halvorson (Secret Keeper): Super Eight (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Two of the most innovative personalities of the New York jazz scene in Brooklyn, Stephan Crump and Mary Halvorson, present a very special, intimate and atmospheric recording called Super Eight under the band name of "Secret Keeper".

Stephan Crump surprised a few years ago with a duo recording on Intakt on which he collaborated with saxophonist Steve Lehman. He made him­self a name with his Rosetta Trio and as the bass player of the Vijay Iyer Trio. Mary Halvorson is one of the busiest musicians around. She plays with Anthony Braxton, Ingrid Laubrock and Marc Ribot to name just a few.

Jim Macnie writes in the linernotes: " Each is fluent in the grammar of modern improv and adept at concocting music from feel. The fact that they're a duo not only italicizes the particulars of their interaction, but spotlights the personality of their instruments. Super Eight finds both guitar and bass resonating. Surrounded by only themselves, they've made an album of unusual candor." "-Intakt
