BIO: KAZZRIE JAXEN
It's a colossal CD ... seriousness and humor, improvisation and quotes in an alloy of rare density and brilliance ... Duo of world class, all categories!
— Bjarne Moelv, Folket, Eskilstuna, Sweden
... nine improvised duets full of rare grace and emotional nuance ... Fite's lithe style serves as a foil of Gorrill's strong, percussive piano ... Each track has it's virtues. Highly recommended.
— David Dupont, Magazine
An exciting collaboration between pianist Gorrill and guitarist Fite . . . inventive interplay for the sake of new directions. Gorrill has a real flair for setting irregular phrases and melodic material against rhythmic figures that would swing in any jazz environment. Fite throws himself into the adventure just as wholeheartedly and shows a sly sense of humor to match Gorrill's. This music will make you enjoy stretching your musical boundaries.
