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



"[...] I had first heard about this recording last year from Mazurek and had been looking forward to it since. And, I'm not disappointed. Mazurek is all acoustic, leaving behind the electronics that have permeated a significant body of his work, and while Parker's guitar is fed through various effects, his sound and approach never overpower. The two blend nicely, creating a series of soundscapes in which the guitar lays the ground work while Mazurek delivers lovely austere melodies.

What a pleasure to stop and listen to this album - the sound so organic and textural. It moves slowly, slyly, without hurry. The duo's music still tingles in my ear as the record runs out and the non-automatic tone arm of my record player delivers a pop as sure as a breath. As I put down the big white album jacket, after reading the liner notes and checking out the photos, a small download card tumbles out. I look at it - is it worth it?"-Paul Acquaro, The Free Jazz Collective
