descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Multi-instrumentalist Thomas Chapin was one of my guiding lights when I started getting into jazz really heavily in the 1990's. His Knitting Factory releases are all stellar, and he could play anything from swing to bop to free, but was possibly at his best when combining all genres or dispensing with the notion of genre entirely.

This duet album finds him in the company of master drummer William Hooker for a two man blast off into the cosmos. Make no mistake, this is energy music on an Interstellar Space level.

Hooker and Chapin are a match made in free-jazz heaven and frequently encourage each other during this performance with shouts of joy. [...]

Cathartic beauty for the heart and soul at its finest and an absolute must for those who explore the edges of jazz and improvisation."-Tim Niland, Music And More
