Seldom is the balance between in and out so natural, and therefore so forceful. Maybe that’s the hidden reason why the saxophonists deem this their “Different but the Same” ensemble. The intergenerational perspectives make their two hatART discs a fascinating study in congruous contrasts, and the last gig I caught reminded that they both agree on one thing: raising the roof–in a cagey, circuitous manner, of course.
