about

“The quartet... moves to the wavelength of Paulo Fresu: traditional, overtly lyrical, uncomplicated..”
DE MORGEN, Antwerp

Building on several international collaborations, Seattle trumpeter Chad McCullough and Antwerp-based pianist Bram Weijters document the unique blend of their compositional and performance styles. From the near stand-still tempo of Weijters' "Another Dark Ballad," to the spiraling search of "Imaginary Folk Song," to the burning, and aptly titled, "Speeding," the musical chemistry is constantly twisting and turning. McCullough's warm lyricism has a great counterpart in Weijters' subtlety and drive, and here, with drummer John Bishop and bassist Chuck Deardorf, the group is captured in a mood-inducing set of music that is uniquely their own.
