"Pallaksch!" Bird Is The Worm Review

"This is the kind of album that you adore for its unapologetic enthusiasm and appreciate for its occasional streaks of pithy lyricism.  With the music of Jimmy Lyons as their raison d’etre, drummer Deric Dickens and saxophonist Jarrett Gilgore work a series of duets that bubble with personality.  This is a sister recording to a quintet session, also with a Lyons theme… expect to hear something about that recording (Streams) in these parts down the road." -Bird Is The Worm, 2015

"Streams" in Chicago Reader

Peter Margasak wrote some kind words about the new album and our show at Elastic on 8/17!
full article HERE

"...The group’s bracing new album, Streams (Mole-Tree Music), includes renditions of some Lyons tunes—including the indelible “Wee Sneezawee”—but the combo also uses his ideas as inspiration for their own writing. The recording features deft interplay between Gilgore and former Chicago trumpeter Jaimie Branch, and includes a series of duets between Gilgore and Dickens, a nod to work in the same format by Lyons and drummer Andrew Cyrille. In July the pair released an additional set of duets in the same vein (and on the same imprint) called Pallaksch! For the group’s Chicago debut Gilgore and two very capable locals will join Dickens: trumpeter Russ Johnson and bassist Anton Hatwich."
