My second album, tapping into some magical chemistry between Chris Cheek and Miguel Zenon on the front line. Tuckahoe is the name of the street I grew up on in Memphis, TN.
“Stephan Crump represents a new breed of bassist/bandleader/composer, one who asks himself and his listeners to entertain new ideas about what jazz can be and where it can go.” - AllAboutJazz
“In this collection bassist/composer Crump conjures up many moods. His understated ensemble approach occasionally gives way to a well-formed solo concept. With his burnished tone and deft fingers, Crump keeps it percolating until it’s his turn to boil.” - Bass Player
“First-rate playing by all the principals on this auspicious debut from Crump, a talent who bears watching.” - JazzTimes
“Crump is also an eloquent instrumentalist whose painterly brushstrokes are heard to great effect on the musical portrait, Eweslepe.” - Berkshire Eagle

It's almost hard to believe there's any space for Tim to fit in when they play this stuff as a duo! The magical uber-complex counterpoint flowing from and resolving to the killer tunes has a similar feel to the full band Berne but these are clarifying in their complexity - you can understand all the moving parts on the same level. Also perhaps the best showcase of Mr Mitchell's solo skills I've heard - he's fully in his element! Giles
