descriptions, reviews, &c.

"These explosive live recordings capture Tony Irving (from legendary UK group Ascension) & Massimo Magee (up-and-coming writer, artist, and musician based in London) in full, incendiary flight on two dates in their early 2019 UK duo tour.

The music is an impassioned statement of transcendental yearning, refracted through some of the more intense possibilities of the acoustic drum kit and saxophone duo on two separate January evenings. It is informed strongly by the free jazz tradition which the duo takes as its vital spark and the timeless relevance of that music to essential human struggle, with urgency and insistence that reflects the contemporary condition. It is a music that, at heart, resists analysis because its eyes are set firmly on achieving a state about which no words could be said, a state that 'gives a holiday to every sense'. This live album is an example of that ongoing endeavor."-577 Records
