“The Marks Brothers dig down, dig in, and dig up a rich music from the depths of that most noble of instruments, the double bass. Compositions, spirited improvisations and pure musicality are what these two masters, Mark Dresser and Mark Helias, bring to their first duo CD for W.E.R.F. Homages include two for the comedic masters, Chico and Zeppo Marx, a suite from the film of Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali, “Un Chien Andalou”and an homage to Ed Thigpen and Lester Bowie. The music is jazz, it is classical, it is experimental, it is modern, it is now!”
