MUSIC REVIEW BY Kyle O'Brien, Jazz Society of Oregon

Northwestern grads, pianist Moshier and saxophonist Lebrun have kept the musical collaboration going past the classroom. Their tunes are sharp modern jazz pieces, giving each the opportunity to say what they want musically. Harmonically and rhythmically rich, as on Lebrun's polyrhythmic "Jambo," these are two musically mature players. They're not concerned with cramming too many notes in, instead concentrating on textures and melodies, as on Moshier's "Saturnine," which juxtaposes full piano chords with John Moulder's light guitar work. There is still a little flash, as on "The Second Handers," which builds with Lebrun's pointed soloing. With some touring on behalf of this impressive disc, the two might just reach beyond the Chicago area.
