CD Reviews

An orchestra of two
Mr. T. Haillay | 06/15/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Musical empathy of the highest degree makes this recording a must. Han Bennink and Dave Douglas have great fun here turning some standards inside out and developing their rapport through their own material. To some the thought of a drum/trumpet duet recording would seem unthinkable but they manage to sound like an orchestra, such is their use of space and their obvious enjoyment in each others company. Han Bennink's work with brushes is wonderful throughout, Too Close for Comfort will get you on your feet! My partner insists that, coincidentally or not, Dave's tune Serpentine is based on Stravinky's "Petrushka chord"... It is a shame that more did not come of Dave's involvement with Han and the Trio Clusone featuring Michael Moore and Ernst Reisjeger, that would have been quite something. Those of you in New York can catch Dave and Han with Misha Mengelberg and Brad Jones in the Autumn (Fall!) Buy this CD and bask in the sound of two jazz giants at the top of their form."
