Pianist Craig Taborn and saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, both born in the great white north (so to speak), Taborn in Minneapolis and Gustafsson, Umeå, in Northern Sweden. Both are original and distinctive improvisers whose paths had never crossed until the 2015 Ljubljana Jazz Festival. Taborn, of late, has been christened heir to the improvised piano chair of Keith Jarrett by ECM records chief Manfred Eicher. This is evidenced by his releases, the solo Avenging Angel (2011), in trio Chants (2013), and as a sideman to Roscoe Mitchell, Ches Smith, Michael Formanek, and Chris Potter

By Alessandro Bertinetto. Mats Gustafsson (sax baritone) e Craig Taborn (piano) hanno suonato insieme solo in questa occasione, il festival jazz di Lubiana del 2015. Hanno dato vita a due lunghe improvvisazioni free (qui indicate come composizioni dei due musicisti): The Eyes Moving. Slowly; The Ears Facing The Fantasies A suonare sono due grandi musicisti e il loro dialogo è davvero creativo e, almeno a tratti, molto coinvolgente. Ma l’album è un tipico esempio di quanto ho già segnalato altre volte. La registrazione offre un documento di una performance trascorsa, una testimonianza.
