Overview

Piano/trumpet duets are somewhat rare in jazz history, particularly in more modern areas of jazz. The pianist has to function as the complete rhythm section while the trumpeter has to have enough variety in sound, ideas, and moods to hold one's attention. Pianist Marc Copland and trumpeter Tim Hagans succeed in all of these areas during their stimulating set. The music they perform is often lyrical and searching, although their versions of Thad Jones' "Three in One" and Ornette Coleman's "When Will the Blues Leave" are also swinging. There is nowhere to hide during duets, but Copland (who often plays dense chords) and Hagans make every note count. This project rewards repeated listenings.
