Rollig, Silke / Burton Greene: Space Is Still The Place (Improvising Beings)

Label: Improvising Beings    
Released in: France    

"Silke (Syl) and I have been close friends, even "spiritual partners' if you will since we first met in 1999. She came to a gig in Soest, Holland I did in quartet with essentially the same band I performed with in her native Cologne, Germany back in about 1987. She was at that gig--in fact the first jazz gig she ever attended--also! Since about 2004 we started working on compositions together. She would write these great original melodies, and I would orchestrate and often extend them. Our pieces together have appeared with different ensembles on several labels: CIMP, BV Haast, Tzadik Records, NoBusiness Records, Music & Words, and recently on the Studio 234 (Boston) label. For the first time thanks to Improvising Beings we are here in the intimacy of our duo-vocals and piano."-Burton Green, from the liner notes.
