Description

'Two Not One' features saxophonist Martin Speake and guitarist Colin Oxley in an intimate duo setting exploring well known standards, a Lester Young blues and three original tunes.

The selection, including classics such as 'Skylark', 'For Heaven's sake' and 'The Nearness of You', alongside original compositions such as Speake/Oxley's ''Coleman Hawkins' indicates a deep rooting in the jazz tradition and the performance illustrates the depth of knowledge of the tradition and it's language held by both improvisers.

Martin Speak is on fine form, displaying a characteristic lyricism, beauty of tone and imaginative melodic construction. Colin Oxley's interplay is exquisite, offering supportive harmonic textures and subtle rhythmic nudges and soloing with a masterful turn of phrase and thematic invention.

"Martin Speake is one of the most interesting and rewarding alto saxophonists now playing jazz on any continent." - Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times

Personnel: Martin Speake (alto saxophone), Colin Oxley (guitar)
