Another intriguing entry in AllAboutJazz's "Saturday, the Fringes" series. Today's offering is a free improv duo between contrabass and woodwinds. This is a tune searching for a haunted forest to soundtrack to.
About the track
Relative Pitch Records debuts with the excellent duo of bassist Joelle Leandre and Bay Area woodwind improviser Phil Greenlief in 11 variations for contrabass and woodwinds. With the addition of their own voices adding unusual punctuation, the Suite progresses through a series of melodic, technical, and curious passages, with Greenlief switching between clarinet, soprano sax, and tenor saxophone.
