Charles Rumback and Ryley Walker are both known for their
creativity and curious spirits. Rumback is a drummer in high
demand in Chicago's free-jazz circles, and a pillar of the second
wave of improvisers in a scene first shaped by the legendary
players like Sun Ra and other members of the AACM. Walker
draws deeply on other distinctly American styles, bringing a
strong sense of folk tradition to his playing that is as arresting as his
freewheeling performance style. Together, Rumback and Walker
find common ground in their kinetic, intuitive playing and yearning
creative outlook. Little Common Twist, their sophomore release as
a duo, finds both players at their most adventurous. It compiles
instrumental pieces that convey a striking range of emotions, at
once introspective and expansive, with a delicate interplay that
delights as they move with ease across a spectrum of styles. The
recording has a pastoral quality that recalls Van Morrison's classic
album Veedon Fleece, and captures a remarkably dexterous performance by both Charles and Ryley that make this album so expansive and fresh.
Little Common Twist was recorded over several sessions throughout
2017 and 2018 with producer John Hughes, capturing the duo
playing in the moment with minimal overdubs. The guitar and
drums duo eschewed each instrument's traditional roles of rhythm
and melody, experimenting with texture and rhythm. This album is
the culmination of a creative partnership that has seen Rumback
and Walker constantly challenging each other. In stretching the
bounds of their interplay even further than before, the duo created
their most evocative and expansive work to date, conjuring the
afterglow of sun-scorched landscapes and ethereal after-hours
ambience.
