Mat Marucci and Doug Webb have established themselves as more than just a team: they are a dynamic duo. Or as one writer aptly said, channeling the interplay and energy of Elvin Jones and John Coltrane.
On this latest effort they bring their energy to nine tracks. Mostly originals. All accessible. All dynamic. Free Bop at its best. Recorded live.

Partners in CrimeMat Marucci (Primary), Doug Webb (Saxophone), Joe Dolister (Bass)This Marucci-Webb collaboration predates the remarkable CIMP recordings by this well matched team (CIMPs 346 and 356). This trio recording‚Äîmade live in 2004 in Sacramento, California‚Äîis a nice combination of originals and standards.

The results: more than 14 exciting tracks. Another facet to the musical mind of David Haney. Change-UpMat Marucci, Doug Webb, Ken FilianoThis is the second half (see CIMP 346) of a phenomenal recording session that produced 2 CDs, all issued in the same order as recorded. In and of itself that means nothing, but CIMP does not record and release music by the pound, so to speak. We release and endorse only quality. This is masterful Bop/ Free Bop music and reflects a very magical 24-hour period, all fully detailed in the Artists', Producer's, and Engineer's Notes. 3 The Hard WayMat Marucci, Doug Webb, Ken FilianoMarucci & Webb have been playing together for years.

This is the first of two CDs documenting two days of the recording of Mat's original and memorable compositions. Released in the same order they were played, this Bop/Freebop session shows that the genre need not be revisionist but freshness and creative artistic integrity can be relative to any period of music.
