New on Palmetto
2013 live album from living Jazz legend pianist Fred Hersch and guitar virtuoso Julian Lage. The February 2013 recording from New York's Kitano is a lively affair filled with poignant beauty, instantly gripping and a great display of how well these two mesh together as they adeptly play six original Hersch compositions and three Jazz standards.
Yet even more positive and noteworthy press for the highly-acclaimed Fred Hersch and Julian Lage. The New York Daily News staff writer Wayne Lockwood calls Free Flying a "interweaving, counterpoint-filled jewel" between the two geniuses of Jazz.

Via NPR: All Songs Considered -- "The members of Moon Hooch describe their sound as "cave music." The band is comprised of two saxophone players and a drummer, a crazy idea that somehow works. "Number 9" is a funky, supremely danceable wailer from the group's self-titled debut." http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2013/10/24/240575315/new-mix-death-cab-for-cutie-rhyes-milosh-la-luz-more Purchase their album on Amazon and iTunes.
