Pianist David Haney in a series of duets with some of his favourite drummers: Bernard Purdie, Han Bennink, Giovanni Barcello, Marvin "Bugalu" Smith and Jimmy Bennington. One of the most inventive pianists in USA, David Haney probes the potentials and the challenges of the piano/drums duo.

"Stix and Stones represents a collection of duets from the past 10 years featuring a few of the drummers that I really love to work with.  I'm always fascinated at the range of style and technique that drummers display. Playing the drums is not about holding down the beat, and it's a huge pleasure to work with a variety of styles.  When I work in duet with drummers I get so many ideas in terms of rhythm, dynamics, etc and that propels me to play harder and play more like a drummer than a pianist."      David Haney
