Nathan Corder Leo Suarez is a master of the drum set. His approach to the drums on this album activates hidden melodies from each piece of the kit and builds complexes of rhythmic strata. The sound goes from frenzies of rhythmic fluxes to haunting drones. I’d buy it TWICE if I could! Two thumbs WAY up!

Marbles on Tile is a collection of improvisations using a solo language that i have been developing for the past year. It's a 3-point system that utilizes a triangular communication path of "hard sounds". These paths develop on top of a base of "soft sound" overtones which are created with longer decaying voices. The pieces start with a small phrase which evolves into a 3-point communication. Other voices are brought in, shortened or extended, becoming more complex and melodic, with a bedrock of sound still changing underneath.
