Nelson-Raney / Mueller: Cutting Off the Edge of Time (Penumbra)
Label: Penumbra    
Released in: USA    

"Cutting Off The Edge Of Time features the duet improvisations of Milwaukee-based tenor saxophonist Steve Nelson-Raney and drummer Jon Mueller. Vividly recorded during an evening session at Penumbra Music by Chris Rosenau (Jon Mueller's partner in Collections of Colonies of Bees and Volcano Choir), these duets demonstrate their unique collective voice, carving out common ground in this set of seven closely attentive duets. On drums and tenor saxophone, the sharpness of their attack and quickness of their interplay are vivid celebrations of the elasticity of time and the fluidity of dialogue.

In that context, the titles of this disc and of these seven improvisations, inspired by the poem "Falling" by Bob Kaufman (published in his City Lights collection Golden Sardine in 1975), are perfectly appropriate."-Penumbra Music
