A meeting in Brooklyn in 1996 of these two monsters of avant-jazz as saxophonist Perelman and pianist Bergman tackle these difficult and passionate pieces.

Perelman, Ivo Duo Featuring Borah Bergman

Perelman, Ivo Duo Featuring Borah Bergman: Geometry (Leo)
Label: Leo    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Ivo Perelman has often recorded without a pianist, but on Geometry, Borah Bergman's piano is his only accompaniment. Having worked with Roscoe Mitchell, Bergman was no stranger to daring saxmen of the avant-garde -- and Perelman is certainly daring on abstract, difficult originals like "Equal Angles," "Linear Passion" and "Sonic Conic," as well as two versions of the Brazilian folk song "Cavaquinho." Like other pianists Perelman has played with (including Marilyn Crispell and Matthew Shipp), Bergman is a disciple of the seminal Cecil Taylor. But being a disciple isn't the same as being a clone, and Bergman's passionate improvisations prove that he's hardly without interesting ideas of his own. [...] Geometry is an enjoyable release that Perelman's more-devoted followers will want."-Alex Henderson
