Jack Wright Trio
At an age when most folk are counting off the days to retirement, his willingness to call his music into question and redefine the fundamental concepts that motivate his playing, coupled with a seemingly indefatigable urge to seek out new playing partners half his age, has made Jack Wright something of a role model for the younger generation of American free improvisers. Read through the list of the musicians he has performed and recorded with in the past five years, and it's a veritable Who's Who of the burgeoning US improv scene: Bhob Rainey, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Tom Djll, Matt Ingalls, John Shiurba, Damon Smith, Scott Rosenberg, Scott Looney, Stefan Dill, Mike Bullock, Matthew Sperry, Greg Kelley.. the list goes on.

Duet for Theremin and Lapsteel
"The name of this Atlanta duo implies a proper classical recital, a rigid formality. But Scott Burland (theremin) and Frank Schultz (lap steel) don't do scripted, improvising not so much distinct sounds as evolving eddies of sound, vapors of tones that develop and transform gracefully. Hypnotic pulses and dreamy drones weave together to form a kaleidoscope of sounds and moods, ambient clouds and swooning collages that are as much about texture as they are timbre, like a long-lost soundtrack to a deep-sea documentary." - P. Wall
