RoomIn a 2013 Q&A with JazzTimes, Lage described the Cline-Lage duo sound
as "200 percent power," and that's exactly what comes through on ROOM:
an inspired collection of originals and collaborative pieces that runs the full
range from intricately composed and complex to free and spontaneous.
Cline builds on the strength of his previous duo work with the likes of
Elliott Sharp, Thurston Moore, Carla Bozulich, Marc Ribot and not
least of all the late West Coast bassist Eric Von Essen. Lage, for
his part, has worked in duo settings with David Grisman, Martin
Taylor, John Abercrombie, Taylor Eigsti and others.

Common GroundAvailable on audiophile 180 gram double vinyl for the first time courtesy of Mack Avenue Records.
On Common Ground, Gary Burton's debut release on Mack Avenue Records, the Grammy-winning pioneer of the four-mallet technique of playing the vibes is not only delivering his first studio album since 2005, but is also introducing his latest band. Well-known throughout his five-decade career for his quartets (beginning with his 1967 group featuring Larry Coryell, Roy Haynes and Steve Swallow), Burton is returning to the configuration for the first time since the mid-90s.
He expresses great enthusiasm for the new band's alchemy. "I've always liked the vibraphone-guitar sound," says Burton, whose masterful vibes glisten throughout Common Ground. "It's something that I discovered when Nashville country guitarist Hank Garland invited me in the '60s to record with him. The sound of the two instruments together has an ideal timbre and coolness."
