Leandre, Joelle & India Cooke

Leandre, Joelle & India Cooke: Journey (NoBusiness)
Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    

"On Journey, violinist India Cooke and bassist Joelle Leandre improvise in that exalted state of grace that every improviser hopes to attain. It's a state in which everything they play just works. It's as if they can't play a bad note or make a sound that doesn't advance the music. In this state, the music unfolds without prior arrangement and at speeds too fast for conscious control, yet it's development and intent is always clear. That deep communication between two or more people is exactly what players and listeners alike look for in improvisation. It happens whenever Cooke and Leandre play."-Ed Hazell

Also available on LP

Limited edition of 500 copies.
