During the course of this straight ahead quartet’s set you might hear a blazing take on “Secret Love” followed by a tender interpretation of Duke Ellington’s “Satin Doll” then a surging rendition of Joe Henderson’s “Inner Urge” or Betz’s swinging original “Razor Sharp.” And it’s always full steam ahead when these two virtuosos take the Exit Zero Jazz Festival stage.
