sample the album:
"One night that captured two musicians, playing together live for the first time ever, exploring each other's playground. Teasing. Interplaying. Pushing and pulling.'Albert Beger (Saxophone) and Gerry Hemingway (Drums and percussion), walked the shared path together, carefully stepping on stones with bare feet, absorbing the heat of the sand and the freezing water.
There were no notes written prior to this encounter, nor a conversation between the two, but the two didn't need any of them. When the firing gun was shot, they embarked their unique special road.
Hemingway is well experienced in working in duos. He's been playing with legendary pianist Marlyn Crispell for many years, with Ellery Eskelin, Terrence McManus, Jin Hi Kim and others.
Beger, probably the most influential figure in the Israeli free jazz scene, played couple of months prior to this recording with Hamid Drake in Tel Aviv, and he often plays in changing ensembles."-OutNow Recordings
