ABOUT 'TWO': "TWO" features all original instrumental jazz compositions which draw from a diverse range of styles from classically infused harmonies to the blues, while staying remarkably melodic and listenable for a jazz record. 'TWO' is mature, introspective and original. Recorded live in pianist Evan Jacobs' living room onto analog tape with absolutely no edits, splices or overdubs, "TWO" captures an organic and unadulterated performance rarely heard on modern recordings.
