SCCD 31749 Kirk Knuffke & Ted Brown “Pound Case”

Cornettist Kirk Knuffke whose previous release “Like A Tree” (SCCD 31739) with his duo collaborator Jesse Stachen prompted Peter Margasak of DownBeat to write, “… Its performances are pitch-perfect, displaying an intuitive understanding that rings something deeply personal to the project.”

For his SteepleChase recording #4 project Kirk had a very special partner in mind: veteran tenorman Ted Brown who is out of the Tristano school and at the age of 84 still active and creative on the world stage.

“Pound Case” is “ of great subtlety, quality and beauty …” (Mark Gardner – from the linernotes)

“…Sitting comfortably at the controls, (Ted Brown) demonstrates from the start that his chops haven’t eroded a bit….. Brown is still at the top of his game .” (Derek Taylor, AAJ– on “Preservation” SCCD 31537)
