While many jazz projects point towards a designated leader, Chicago’s Twin Talk operates as a true democracy. Band members Andrew Green (drums), Dustin Laurenzi (saxophone), and Katie Ernst (bass/vocals) have focused their creative energies on collaborative musical communication on their self-titled sophomore album, TWIN TALK (ears&eyes Records).

"Twin Talk is a relatively new, youthful ensemble out of Chicago that’s steeped in that city’s long history of experimental and avant-garde jazz-based music. Drummer Andrew Green, bassist/vocalist Katie Ernst and sax player Dustin Laurenzi represent the next generation of players in that tradition, gleefully playing with song structures, melodies and rhythms to create something distinctively their own." -Cool Cleveland

"This quirky, wonderfully listenable piano-led set out of Toronto has an avant-garde spirit wrapped up in lovely melodies, gentle phrasing and sly humor... Great music!" KZSU Stanford Radio

"Pianist/composer Tania Gill understands the understated power of lyricism... There's evidence of Gill having drunk deeply at the double well of the Bleys (composer Carla and pianist Paul): in motifs, harmonic concepts, pianism and pauses...." Exclaim Magazine

"All aboard for the first-class and fanciful Toronto pianist"
Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
