Jeff Marx & Jeff "Siege" Siegel - Dreamstuff

Mike Szajewski, WNUR

Recorded in the summer and winter of 2005, here is a set of 10 relatively short pieces which explore the more swinging, bouncy side of free jazz in a sax/drums format.

Marx proves to be a powerful player, more than carrying his weight as the sole tonal voice of the album. He takes a basic idea in each piece, and introduces a series of turns and variations, creating a lively overall feel.

Siegel's drumming is deceptively free; despite being of a traditional time signature, each phrase seems to be perfectly in place, which speaks volumes about the communicative ability of these two as a pair.
