duo#1 09:57
trio#2 03:26


In December 2015, Marilyn, Raymond and PA played a two-part concert in Huddersfield. Whilst both parts of the concert contain some excellent improvised music, even more interesting is the relationship between the two sets, and the result of a slight change in personnel. A real treat for improvised music aficionados.

---------- press quotes ----------

“duo# 2 finds Crispell and MacDonald in deep musical conversation that incorporates spontaneous mutual phrasing reflecting not only creative compatibility but also uncanny conjunctions of rhythmic like-thinking. trio#3 ends the album in an atmosphere heavy with portent that evaporates as the music slowly fades away. The listener – this one, in any case – is bewitched and puzzled, and listens again from the top.”
