Phoning It In 06/22/05

Album Description

Host: Nadav Carmel
Engineer: Nadav Carmel
Marriage Records' Curtis Knapp and Davis Lee Hooker (sans Adrian Orange) phone it in from Portland, OR. Artful and unkempt parlor jazz, picking at elements of Erik Satie, Scott Joplin, and Jimmy Smith, they describe themselves as "inspirational elevator music, filmic rhythmic furniture music." At times deliberate, at others propulsive, Curtis and Davis sounds like a lazy afternoon the way only the tightest groups can.
