Recorded in Rome, perfect stage, great acoustics, four master performers with a vast knowledge of idioms as well as a deep understanding of non-idiomatic, abstract means of musical expression and four sets of ears as widely open as the gates of the Colosseum make up the ingredients to this fine live recording. The players flow together effortlessly and are able to create soundscapes of tension and release, harsh noise and delicate whisper, engin-ears of mutual fearlessness doing away with meaningless separation of genre. Roaming through sounds, carried by trust and wealth of experience they uncoil a steady stream of poised musicality that simply feels right yet defies explanation.
