The Secret Stop

Free Jazz/Improvised Music from New Orleans/Houston based musicians.

"Kamins intersperses long, coarse tones with emphatic pops, and Alford evidences a fluent stutter that suggests he's spent a lot of time studying James "Blood" Ulmer's sound grammar. Pagano's cymbal sizzle and mutating not-quite-patterns provide both forward momentum and a framework within which the action occurs."

Bill Meyer, Dusted Magazine

"For me, this is one of Danny's best albums... the music is basically free jazz, with elements of free post-punk, and free post-bop... "Our Secret" is notable for its extremely expressive alto line and permanent changes of moods, from an eruption-like volcano to peaceful meditations. I also adore the final track "The Secret Stop", again for its dynamics and truly stunning saxophone lines. Bravi tutti!"
