Album Review

McPhee, Joe / Nilssen-Love, Paal – “Tomorrow Came Today” – [Smalltown Superjazzz]

Max Level   2/2/2010   CD, Jazz

Improvised duets on tenor sax (McPhee) and drums (Nilssen-Love). The dynamic level rises and falls as the two players push and prod and suggest where the music should go next. The veteran McPhee sounds like he???s willing to try just about any approach on his sax, from soft gentle tones to full-bore skronkadelic. He also whips out a pocket trumpet on Track 3. As always, drummer Nilssen-Love just can???t be stopped; he plays with power but is incredibly nimble. He is only about half McPhee???s age, yet the two find plenty of musical common ground. The pure, unpredictable creativity of these players stands up to repeated listening.
