In the Shadow of Palms features Kyle Coughlin on clarinet and tenor saxophone playing duos with pianist Lou Rainone and guitarist Michael Raitzyk. Coughlin composed all of the pieces which range in style from straight ahead jazz to Latin to funk. The CD includes a few ballads and bears the influence of impressionist music and Irish jigs, as wll. One of the pieces, entitled “Olney” -- the town where Coughlin grew up, has a feel similar to the early style of Pat Metheny.
