Two Quartets: Live at the Lily Pad

Buy Two Quartets: Live at The Lily Pad at!

This album was recorded live at the Lilypad in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The album features the music of bassist and composer Tom Casale. It brings together two diverse quartets who play Casale's music beautifully. The Drive Quartet is lead by Bassist Tom Casale along with: Saxophonist's Brian McCarthy and Jared Sims; Guitarist Ian Macaulay; and Drummer Alex Chapman. The Infinite Darkness is also lead by Bassist Tom Casale but with: Guitarist Mike Bernier; Pianist Tony Cabral and Drummer Alex Chapman.

Both groups approach Casale's music differently, but with equal energy and understanding. The music ranges from groove, to straight ahead, to soundscapes and everything in between. It reminds the listener of the sounds of Wayne Shorter, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Evans, Esjborn Svenssen, The Bad Plus and many others, but has a sound all of it's own. Casale's music is new interesting, original and unique and a must hear for any listener looking for something new and creative.
