Dave Rempis and Frank Rosaly Release First Duo
On the Chicago improvisational scene tenor (and alto & baritone) virtuoso Dave Rempis and drummer Frank Rosaly are important figures. We've discussed them on Gapplegate Blogs and in Cadence as some key players in various bands. They've never recorded as a duet, until now and their Cyrillic (482 Music).
It's a good session, rather totally free with various moods represented. Dave Rempis surely plays some very nice sax here and Frank Rosaly drums with forethought. It's one of those records that you'll appreciate if you already know their work or if you like pared-down free improvisation dates. If all that is new to you, this is not the place to start.
