Fewell, Garrison / Gianni Mimmo: Flawless Dust (Long Song Records)

Label: Long Song Records    
Released in: Italy    

"An enlightened dialogue, not barely a musical one, between Gianni Mimmo and Garrison Fewell, two Elsewhere oriented minds driving us to intense phenomena. Molecular heart beats, cosmic dust, silent flashes, humble and powerful sparks. Respect and introspection liven up a dance of hands around instruments, bursting new and luminous intersections. Flawless Dust is a flow of ideas, questions and answers often surprising even for these musicians with a work of tireless research that spans over decades. Kindness and layerings: gentle spirits opened to a soul warming light."-Long Song Records
