The first meeting by pianist Marily Crispell and drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo in seven extended and inspired duets that well show their vast wealth of experience.
Moholo-Moholo, Louis and Crispell, Marilyn
Sibanye (we Are One): Duets
Released in: Switzerland
"Here's one meeting of refined minds that doesn't result in complacency. Drummer Moholo-Moholo, (known formerly by just the single surname) and pianist Marilyn Crispell have put in countless hours fashioning music from out of nothing other than the moment. They bring that wealth of experience to bear here in music which is by turns joyously unpredictable and provoked into being by the imperative of that moment."-Nic Jones, All About Jazz
