Incredible, understated improvisation from two masters of the form - Axel Dorner on trumpet and Angharad Davies on violin - in three commanding tracks of atmospheric momentum.

Davies, Angharad / Axel Dorner

Davies, Angharad / Axel Dorner: A.D. (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"Neither player should need much introduction, as both are widely acknowledged as leading improvisers on their respective instruments. These domestic recordings mark their first meeting as a duo, and - in the words of another early reviewer, David Grundy - create "the atmosphere of surprise - of magic - that great improvisation is still so uniquely capable of providing". "-Another Timbre

"In a stunning performance, Dörner coaxes an extraordinary range of sounds out of his trumpet, from breathy resonances verging on white noise through to low frequency sounds of tongue fluttering and metallic percussive noises. Davies matches him in kind (again, some of her high notes could be electronic) but, more importantly, she always manages a response that is timely and appropriate. The end result is two instruments meshing into a seamless whole; the parts can be heard but they are so sympathetically matched that the whole is greater than their sum.... The best of the bunch? Close, but it is really too close to call."-John Eyles, All About Jazz
