descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Cornetist Rob Mazurek and guitarist Jeff Parker have been playing together since 1994 when they launched the Chicago Underground workshop together at Chicago's storied jazz club The Green Mill. Marking 20 years of collaboration, Mazurek and Parker will celebrate with their first ever duo release, Some Jellyfish Live Forever, for Rogue Art in 2015. The record explores the rich vocabulary of these two masters to the fullest extent using melody and texture, sound architecture, line and mass."-RogueArt
