A seminal meeting between two of the most important modern jazz talents of the 70s – reedman AnthonyBraxton, whose roots in the Chicago AACM scene were already expanding to a huge influence on the European world of free jazz – and guitarist DerekBailey, the British player who seemingly stepped out of his own unique space to completely revolutionize the electric guitar! Both musicians are at their best here – working together at a level that's as much sonic exploration in terms of tones, textures, and timings – as it is new frontiers of music. And that's not to say that there's not some great musical moments, too – as the combination of darkness and light is what really makes the album special – as both players move effortlessly through an extended improvisation. Bailey plays electric guitar – and Braxton blows soprano, alto, b flat clarinet, and contrabass clarinet. Great 2LP reissue – with a full two sides of unreleased material recorded at the same performance as the main album! LP, Vinyl record album
