me with Cathlene Pineda last March in Seattle. we play our duo set that we had worked out and then improvise a set with Paul Kikuchi. dope!

thanks to Doug at Sonarchy Radio!

scope it! great interview of ZnZ by Drew Williams for Wing Walker Music. fun times w/ me, Kenny Warren, Will McEvoy.

nice review from Dave over at Bird is the Worm and Wondering Sound.

"Easily the most appealing aspect of this recording is the way in which Breiner’s saxophone volatility meshes with the flowing passages of bass arco… it creates a brooding intensity that is both fearful and strangely mesmerizing." - Dave Sumner, Bird is the Worm
