CD Reviews

Exciting, masterful spontaneity.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Intimate improvisational music played with absolute mastery by a criminally underrated saxophonist/flutist/composer and a great virtuoso of the double bass. A profound musical journey - but also just a dialogue between friends. Essential."
Beautifully clear, improvisational music!!!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Please be aware that this music will not immediately mandate foot tapping. Nor was it intended to, at least not during the first listen. It IS the combination of two legendary musicians providing wholly improvised, extended duo performances that never weaken with time. This music was recorded in 1976, and is still fresh. It does not fall into the traps of, I am sorry to say standard, so-called free form music, with its inability to focus. Rather, this musical set brings the listener to and through distinctly formed stream of consciousness improvisations with Sam Rivers playing and soprano then tenor saxes, underpinned by Dave Holland on Bass. This, along with Volume two of this collaboration, should be a part of anyone's collection who appreciates interactive music which develops musical forms with structure and clarity; music that never fades."
Good flow

"Excellent reviews, I just want to add that interested listeners might also want to check out the David Holland album "Conference of the Birds". It features Sam Rivers and Anthony Braxton on reeds and flutes, and the incredible percussionist Barry Altschul in 1972. Mr. Rivers also sounds incredible on the Tony Williams album "Lifetime". I highly recommend that disk as well."
