Collaboratively-led trio Twin Talk is celebrating the release of their self-titled album on the Ears&Eyes Record label. Described by All About Jazz as “bold in its youthful energy, sophisticated in its thematic unity,” the Chicago band has been gaining notoriety for their offbeat melodic approach to creative improvised music. They have performed at venues and festivals throughout the US, including the 2014 Chicago Jazz Festival, the Jazz Institute of Chicago's NextGenJazz Series, and the Hyde Park Jazz Festival.
From the Press:
"Twin Talk is a relatively new, youthful ensemble out of Chicago that’s steeped in that city’s long history of experimental and avant-garde jazz-based music. Drummer Andrew Green, bassist/vocalist Katie Ernst and sax player Dustin Laurenzi represent the next generation of players in that tradition, gleefully playing with song structures, melodies and rhythms to create something distinctively their own." -Cool Cleveland
"[Twin Talk] have achieved the kind of stylistic and tonal integration that usually comes after players have been working together a decade or more; it’s a true collaboration, a real conversation..." - Newcity Music
"...a cohesive and original album that brims with a vibrant fluidity and a poetic sense." - Chicago Jazz Magazine
