Here's his take on "Hot For Teacher", courtesy of Creative Nation Music and IODA Promonet:
Hot for Teacher (mp3)
While there's nothing "new" on "Past Present", the music is played so well, so thoughtfully and so melodically by this Trio, it's easy and rewarding to return to time and again. One imagines that their "live" shows sound just like this. For more information, go to www.oa2records.com.
One is used to Bill McHenry working in small ensembles, creating musical worlds that often swing or sway with an emphasis on melodic and harmonic development. Ben Monder has created many different sonic worlds for groups large and small. On this date, the duo has experimented in developing an audio program that is adventurous in scope and execution but may be too chilly for those expecting musical fire. Yet, this CD is well worth exploriing. For more information, click on http://sunnysiderecords.com/release_detail.php?releaseID=493.
