In this exciting Smalls LIVE project, saxophonist Tim Ries explores an original terrain with fellow saxophonist Chris Potter. The group is rounded out by the powerhouse rhythm-section of John Patitucci on bass, Billy Drummond on drums and the fascinating Gypsy-born pianist Kalman Olah. Ries offers some poignant compositional work including the beautiful 'New View' and an intricate take on the theme from Schubert s string quartet in D minor called 'Death And The Maiden.' The communication between Ries and Potter is extraordinary and compelling and fascinating in the live context of the club environment.
