Bell, Clive / Saade, Bechir
An Account of My Hut: Improvisations for Shakuhachi and Ney

Bell, Clive / Saade, Bechir: An Account of My Hut: Improvisations for Shakuhachi and Ney (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"Without doubt the greatest ever disc of shakuhachi and ney duets.... Both are flute-like instruments - one from Japan, one from the Middle East - but in the hands of skilled improvisers they produce an astonishing variety of sounds. Veteran shakuhachi player Clive Bell collaborated with young Lebanese improviser Bechir Saade during the latter's year-long stay in England in 2007. The results are alternately haunting, raw and breathy, otherworldly, lyrical and always unexpected. Seven pieces of chamber improv of the highest order. Domestic recordings from west London in July and October 2007."-Another Timbre
