For those who fear that jazz is taking itself too “seriously”
and losing its sense of fun and abandon, ES2’s new CD
AlgoRhythms (on Twin Rivers Recordings) will bring a sigh
of relief – followed by a big smile. The brainchild of trombonist
Erick Storckman and keyboardist Eliot Smith, ES2 makes the

jubilant expression and rollicking swing, AlgoRhythms takes an
unfettered approach in the spirit of the Mingus small groups -
with a great big sound, infectious compositions and
explosive energy. Read more about this artist
