"Individually or collectively, these are first-class musicians, and their expertise and rapport are explicitly manifest on every page of each chapter." All About Jazz
Discovering their musical kinship while attending the University of North Texas, Nova Scotia-based trumpeter/flugelhornist Paul Tynan and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington from the Bay Area haven't let logistics get in the way of its ongoing development over the 16 years of this bicoastal partnership. Combining their original works, musician friends old and new, and specific concepts for each project, they've created five wide-ranging works, each spurring on the next incarnation of the collective. For Chapter Six, they pair with the New York rhythm team of electric bassist Trifon Dimitrov and drummer Joe Abba for a chord-less quartet where they explore sounds and timbres through electronics, grooves & aesthetics captured from late-stage Miles Davis, and generally open the door to the possibilities of the moment.
