Marilyn Crispell has been a composer and performer of contemporary improvised music since 1978. For ten years, she was a member of the Anthony Braxton Quartet and the Reggie Workman Ensemble, and she has performed and recorded extensively as a soloist and with players on the American and international jazz scene, also working with dancers, poets, film-makers and visual artists, and teaching workshops in improvisation. She has been the recipient of three New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship grants, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust composition commission.

"Hearing Marilyn Crispell play solo piano," writes Jon Pareles of The New York Times, "is like monitoring an active volcano. She is one of a very few pianists who rise to the challenge of free jazz." Equally explosive, Carmen Castaldi has been a leading jazz drummer in Cleveland for decades. Castaldi is "one of Cleveland's best kept secrets," says Tom Orange, New Ghosts promoter and Jazz Director for WCSB 89.3 FM. "His sense of time, his power and, just as important, his intonation are impeccable, easily ranking him as a peer, at the very least, among other, more widely-known drummers. I mean, he's toured Europe with Joe Lovano several times, but mostly he performs close to home. And he's an incredibly modest, deeply spiritual player and person as well."
