Cornettist Kirk Knuffke whose previous release “Like A Tree” (SCC D 31739) with his duo collaborator Jesse Stachen prompted Peter Margasak of DownBeat to write, “… Its performances are pitch-perfect, displaying an intuitive understanding that rings something deeply personal to the project.”

For his SteepleChase recording #4 project Kirk had a very special partner in mind: veteran tenorman Ted Brown who is out of the Tristano school and at the age of 84 still active and creative on the world stage. “Pound Case” is “of great subtlety, quality and beauty …” (Mark Gardner – from the linernotes)

“…Sitting comfortably at the controls, (Ted Brown) demonstrates from the start that his chops haven’t eroded a bit….. Brown is still at the top
of his game.” (Derek Taylor, AA J– on “Preservation” SCC D 31537)
