Braxton Quartet alumni pianist Marilyn Crispell and drummer Gerry Hemingway in an album bringing the duo back together to express the evolution of their respective music, and the affinity of their work.

Crispell, Marilyn / Gerry Hemingway

Crispell, Marilyn / Gerry Hemingway: Affinities (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"[...] Throughout the album, Crispell and Hemingway demonstrate real affinities for each other while challenging the conventional wisdom of improvised music. Their darting vibraphone and piano exchange on "Starlings" debunks the idea that the projection of velocity is necessarily accompanied by thunderous intensity. Crispell's close-order unison lines and Hemingway's rudiments-soaked snare on "Finis" creates an imperial aura without dripping sarcasm. They arrive at the same nuanced point time and again with impressive elegance, as if they're twins. Bill Shoemaker, from the liner notes

12 page booklet with color photos and text.
