From the press text for Leo Records double exposure:
The quartet Double Exposure
creates multi-layered musical images, displaying a seldom-heard sensitivity to sound and dynamics. As each member of the band is a textural player as well as a master of the improvised line, a rare balance is achieved in the compositions which often bring together seemingly divergent stylistic ideas. Improvisation and composition meet on a plane where it is hard to tell where one begins and the other ends. A concert performance of Double Exposure
leaves you mystified by its contrasting moods, melodic bizarreness, austere lyricism, outlandish grooves, but also by its playfulness and humor.
