Product Notes

Married Couple is four improvisers who've found they have a lot to say to each other. At first, all they shared in common was a restlessness with jazz and a ridiculous sense of humor. But the quartet soon developed it's own unique musical communication that's informed by jazz but also reflects the members' experiences playing speed metal, reggae, Afropop, funk, contemporary classical music and soul. They chuckled through jam sessions. They surprised each other. Soon they realized they needed to all get married and be a band. The unlikely instrumentation of drums, bass, trombone and tenor saxophone provides opportunities for Married Couple to create sounds previously unimaginable. Transparent textures created by atmospheric drumming, growling bowed bass and lush, airy horn harmonies find their place alongside raucous grooves with punchy New Orleans trombone, swirling tenor flights and meaty drum and bass tirades. Intense bubbling energy wrapped in warm fuzzy sound. Interpretations of Björk, Depeche Mode, Schubert and Shostakovitch take their place alongside intricate original compositions, avant-garde jazz tunes and juicy pop songs written by friends. We figured, since most people listen to a bunch of different kinds of music, bands should be allowed to play all that, too. Our relationship with jazz? Antagonistic. With pop? Appreciative, but subversive. With classical music? Downright naughty. Like any self-respecting Married Couple, we squabble. But the fun is in the tension - between serene and edgy, sober and playful, sarcastic and sincere. It's agreeing on one thing - at any moment, anything is possible.
