The duo of Mary Halvorson and Stephan Crump didn't fully live up to its potential on Super Eight, which felt like a low-key space for the guitarist-composer (and sometime bandmate of Anthony Braxton) to explore new textures with the bassist from the Vijay Iyer Trio. Their follow-up is still an intimate and low-stakes enterprise -- opener "What I'll Do" progresses with what sounds like mellow raindrops streaking down a nearby windowsill -- but the pair touches on more styles here, and at a quicker clip (check out the almost-straight blues that Halvorson plays toward the end of the title track).
