Parker, Evan / Matthew Shipp: Rex, Wrecks & XXX [2 CDs] (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    

"Two (exceptional) musicians, two backgrounds, two approaches to music, two generations, an ocean between them: at the end, only one music, unique, outstanding, made of listening and respect of each other. The purpose is not to limit themselves to what they might have in common, but to expand the realm of possibility by assimilating in the moment what the other can bring. Although both are improvised, studio work of the first CD, leaving more time for reflection, is the perfect complement to the second CD, live, giving free rein to spontaneity."-RogueArt
