about

Though I’m not 100% positive as to the political intent (& who would WANT to be, on an improvised album, anyway), this is one HECKUVVA CD! Excursionary, there are trade-offs & switchbacks throughout between Gary’s alto & Dave’s violin highs & lows. They were at a (relatively) slow pace, no scorchers speedwise, but from the standpoint of intricacy, this outing will astound even the most hardcore of improv listeners (& players, for that matter). As with any improvised recorded music, it’s much better in live performance, but Dave & Gary have managed to capture a great deal of that ambience through the close attention they pay to each other. They also are able to avoid the “squeek/whistle” mode often associated with violin/sax improv, which will make it accessible to a much broader audience. For the pure improv-head & the dabbler alike, this will be pure pleasure, & a “keeper”! If you haven’t “dabbled” (with improvised/freestyle music) before, this would be an excellent place to start. It gets our MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, without qualification! - Rotcod Zzaj
