This release features Travis Laplante (tenor saxophone) and Peter Evans (trumpet); both perform from a broad palette of sounds. The music ranges from drum-like pops to farts to whispers to Coltrane, like sheets of notes executed with blistering speed and precision. The amount of information is staggering and the ride is quite thrilling.
The format, being a duet, has implications of conversation, which is admirably executed in a balance of phrases as well as some really amazing high speed jousts. This release will blow away a lot of people by virtue of sheer intensity.
However, the topics of conversation between the two do not vary significantly in the pieces presented, and in that respect, it's much less satisfying than it could have been overall. (NNA Tapes)
