Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-10-13
Improvised duets between saxophone and bass. Sound-based explorations.

1*- Twenty-eight minute piece that ephasizes growly sax and growly bowed bass, for a kind of threatening sound. Halfway point has pauses that make a good start/stop point. First 2-1/2 minutes make a nice growly excerpt, ending with a pause. Ends aggressively.

2- Small quick burbles. Slow and sparse
3- Quiet
4*- Mostly quiet and high-pitched. Accelerates into a fast jumble a couple of times.
5- Slow landscapes. Fast, sudden ending.
