Grimal, Alexandra / Joelle Leandre: Desordre (Montagne Noire)

A playful, thoughtful, and quick witted encounter between Egyptian saxophonist Alexandra Grimal and French double bassist Joelle Leandre, at times each on voice, emphasizing a "desired disorder" in their approach to instant composition and declaring that neither determines the course of the music, but that they follow it simply as the music decides; wonderful.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

Two instruments linked together, calling to each other, leaping and recalling in joy and playful attitude. Their dialog is unique, lively, quick-witted and playful. The two musicians compose instantly, improvise and emphasize a "desired disorder" in the work. They state that they don't determine anything, letting the music decide, as they follow it, simply.
