Jazz In A Duo Setting
With Pianist Raleigh Dailey
Masterclass/Play-Along CD
by Miles Osland

For almost a decade, pianist Raleigh Dailey and I have performed in many different contexts: 17 piece Big Band, 9 piece Little Big Band, sextets, quintets, and quartets. But the one setting that I find the most challenging, creative, and musically satisfying is the duo. Without the “crutch” of a full rhythm section one most possess real good inner time to survive in this format. Also, you must couple yourself with a pianist that not only has good time, but that you trust and have a good rapport with to be able to collaborate in a musical manner.
When we sit down to play in a duo setting it truly is a musical discussion or conversation. I like to think of Raleigh as my musical “safety net.” In other words, I can go wherever I want: harmonically, rhythmically, etc., and he’ll go with me, but he’ll also always be able to “reel me back in” if I stray too far.
