Ryan Driver/Justin Haynes/Michael Davidson - First Improvization for Bass Piano [excerpt]

Full review to follow. Tuning an entire piano down an octave (a process that I learned some more about here) does some cool things, with the slackened tension causing all sort of buzzing overtones and bell-like sounds. Ryan Driver began the night on the Bass Piano in a set joined by Haynes on celeste and Davidson on vibraphone — the former complementing the tinkling bell-like qualities and the later the sustaining notes.
