sample the album:
"This is the meeting of two giants of improvised music that music lovers have been waiting for for a long time. The double CD documents this meeting in its entirety. Anthony Braxton played sopranino, soprano and alto saxes, and contra-bass clarinet. One can write volumes about this meeting, yet two words would be sufficiant to describe what happened in that Heidelberg Cafe on March 17, 2007 - pure magic. Extensive notes by Stuart Broomer."-Leo Records
