Spontaneous Music Ensemble: Face to Face (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    

"John Stevens (percussion, cornet, voice) and Trevor Watts (soprano saxophone) at the legendary Little Theatre Club - as close as one can get to two musicians improvising as one. Non-repetitive music at its most minimal and essential. Reissue of Emanem 303 (a formative influence on John Zorn among others) with extra material from the same sessions."-Emanem
