  • Description

    Pianist Nicki Adams and saxophonist Michael Eaton duo album, recorded in 2023, stays in "Third Stream", a term invented by Gunther Schuller as a way to create a new genre by bringing jazz and European classical music together. As Eaton explains, "We think of ourselves as jazz musicians with some classical training, but our cultural milieu was one where jazz had become a global music."

    The debut album 'Paraphrase' prompted The New York City Jazz Record's Dan Bilawsky to remark, "the tracks illuminate the duo's take on jazz history and where things might be headed next."

    Michael Eaton: tenor saxophone
    Nicki Adams: piano
