"Twofer features the duet improvisations of acoustic guitarist John Corbett with two separate collaborators: cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and bassist Torsten Müller. John Corbett's work as an improviser and composer is well-documented on his two Penumbra CDs (The Devil's in the Details and Van's Peppy Syncopators) and his studiophonic collections I'm Sick About My Hat and Sticky Tongues and Kitchen Knives (with Mats Gustafsson). Fred Lonberg-Holm may be best known for his work with fellow Chicagoans Michael Zerang and Ken Vandermark in numerous ensembles, including the Peter Brotzmann Chicago Octet/Tentet. Bassist Torsten Müller's short, potent discography, includes the LPs Müller recorded with legendary Hannover-based improvisor, trombonist, cellist and bassist Günter Christmann. These include a quartet with Christmann, Davey Williams, and LaDonna Smith, White Earth Streak (reissued by Atavistic), a duet record Carte Blanche (FMP) and a trio recording with Lol Coxhill and Paul Rutherford titled Milwaukee 2002 (on Emanem). Lou Mallozzi's Experimental Sound Studio recording of these duets captures all the subtle exchanges of these remarkable improvisations."-Penumbra Music
