hat happens when poise meets pluck? From his eloquence with Andrew Hill to his energy with Mary Halvorson, this bassist has proven himself as left-leaning mainstreamer who works a poetic lingo while still keeping things engaged. His Hat Hut duets with pianist Russ Lossing are good example of rumination with results. Lossing's part of this squad, a foursome of dudes who deserve to have their individual praises sung. Watch how much saxophonist Loren Stillman finds ways to tunnel through the action.
