A quirky mainstreamer, he utilizes the mainstream-based technique and impregnates it with odd twists and turns. Respected in the music community, Kyle's earlier work (CadenceJazz 1182, CadenceJazz 1204) is almost exclusively in the company of Joel Press, and both Cadence Jazz releases have been singled out for the pianistic work.

Trio X: Roulette at Location OneTrio X (Primary), Joe McPhee (Soprano Saxophone), Jay Rosen (Drums), Dominic Duval (Bass)Trio X first worked together as part of a 1998 CIMPhonia (CIMP 175 and 178) gathering with Paul Smoker, Mark Whitecage, David Prentice, and Peter Kowald from which they carved out their group, Trio X, and made their first recording (The Watermelon Suite, CIMP 183).
Roulette at Location One is their eighth recording and the latest release.
This session is a beautiful representation of Trio X's brilliant use of theme developoment, emotional impact, and thoughtful musicality. It's a hell of a ride.
