A duo is a unique setting. When you play in a band, even if it's only three or more people, one person must lead and the others follow. Arrangements are often needed so everyone can be on the same page. When we play in a duo setting, there doesn't need to be a plan, no predetermined leader or follower. You have the freedom just to play and interact with the other person. It becomes a conversation and, like a conversation, it takes on a life of its own. It becomes a thing created spontaneously, a thing independent from either of its creators.

As a pianist, a duo really is one of my favorite formats. I love the looseness of it - being able to follow or lead when I want, to hear the bare bones of the song as expressed by a linear instrument, with no drums or bass to muddy the waters. It takes a special kind of horn player to be able to feel comfortable in that setting because you're so exposed. As pianists, we are accustomed to that level of exposure because we are often called upon to perform solo, but for horn players, I think it is a bit like walking a tightrope without a net. No rhythm section to catch you if you fall, no extraneous sounds to distract the listener. It's a pure sound and a pure format. It exposes one's musicianship.

I have loved playing duets with Weeds for many years, and especially in this beautiful house concert setting. There is such camaraderie there.

Press Quotes

Pairing vocalist/pianist CHAMPIAN FULTON with alto saxophonist CORY WEEDS is not a duo that would seem obvious to envision, but listen to Dream a Little... (Cellar Live - 022518), and you will find that the decision to do so was inspired. The ten-song program will provide you with an hour of hip sounds from two musicians who seem to have a natural affinity. Fulton has become established as a first-rate vocalist, and her pianism is superlative. Weeds is best known in his home ground of Vancouver, but through his Cellar Live family of labels his excellence as a player has been reaching new and welcoming audiences. The tunes are mostly familiar, songs like 'Dream a Little Dream of Me,' 'Fly Me to the Moon,' 'Darn That Dream,' 'Pennies From Heaven' and 'I Thought About You.' There are four instrumental tracks, 'Secret Love,' 'Tangerine,' 'Save Your Love for Me' and 'Lullaby for Art,' a Fulton original. It was nice to hear them include the Eubie Blake/Andy Razaf tune, 'I'd Give a Dollar for a Dime,' a good song, rarely heard. Fulton and Weeds make a fine duo, and should record more like this in the years to come. (cellarlive.com)

...the latest release from national treasure Champian Fulton finds her in duet with the excellent saxophonist Cory Weeds...Like every album by the wonderful Champian Fulton, this one is strongly recommended to all libraries.
