Evan Parker & Joe McPhee
What/If/They Both Could Fly
Well, sort of. The conversation is considered, and the thematic connection is evident and works fairly well, but one gets the feeling that the solo interventions that operate as springboards do not as much lead to breaking new ground in duo music as they do in setting the stage for a literal response. Both stick to the tried and true, and that in itself is good work. However, if the listener expects any radical departures from that body of work or new insights into form, they will be disappointed.
