Synopsis

Album Description
Anderson is a living jazz legend who has been releasing records for well over half a century and has shared stages with the likes of Pharaoh Sanders, John Gilmore, William Parker, and Mats Gustafsson. Drake is widely considered the best drummer in all of improvised jazz, and has played with Don Cherry, Peter Brotzmann, Henry Grimes, and Herbie Hancock, to name a few. Together, Anderson and Drake have recorded their most relaxed, perfectly balanced album yet. The empathy and cohesiveness of the ensemble, coupled with the saxophonist's brilliant, searching improvisations makes it a ringer. Features contributions from Harrison Bankhead (8 Bold Souls), Jeff Parker (Tortoise, Joshua Redman's band), and Josh Abrams (Town And Country, Prefuse 73).
