Re: Alex Riel here!
I have a question, don't know if you can answer it, Alex. What's with those 2004 Steeplechase releases? Are they re-releases or unheard stuff? Man, don't tell me (or my wallet) I'm missing some of your playing! I checked them with all my Steeplechase stuff and although they have the same material, I don't know if it's previously released or alternate versions/dates.
Also wanted to mention I landed a copy of your trio CD and as usual, it was tasteful, warm and wise. Your cymbals, also as always sound beautiful. I take it you're using basically the same set up as you've outlined in this thread? I hear that flat, for sure. I really especially liked the originals (and the cover photo!)
