Saxophonist Walter Smith III reappears side by side with guitarist Matthew Stevens in the revived In Common group, two years after the release of its eponymous album. In Common 2 remains a quintet but features a reformed rhythm team with emerging pianist Micah Thomas, bassist Linda May Han Oh and drummer Nate Smith on board. Yet, the concept behind the project remains intact: inelaborate forms, direct and concise melodies, short durations, and a straightforward approach.
