This self-titled album is a collection of improvisations for acoustic 12 string guitar and alto flute, bass clarinet and soprano saxophone. We recorded this in Los Angeles, CA in February.
Vinny and I have been making music in various projects over the past several years, but this is our first foray into an all-acoustic setting. Musically the songs have a mixture of Appalachian folk, blues, free improvisation, 20th century classical and free jazz.

"Having an overall vibe somewhere between a modern folk music and a lost indigenous music.."
-Chris Haines, freejazzblog.org
"It’s natural, it’s raw. It’s an ice cold folk that simply enchants and amazes."
"Each piece gets better as these two grower tighter and turn things into an intense dialogue, weaving ideas around one another superbly. Much of this duo is riveting.."
-Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery (NYC)
