Win 'Home' by Bruce Barth & Steve Wilson!
This is a lyrical and spacious collaboration between pianist Bruce Barth and alto and soprano saxophonist Steve Wilson.
The music is a mix of Barth original compositions and well known standards recorded live before a sympathetic audience. The sound is very close and intimate with the musicians sculpting the empty space and silence around them.
Fast paced tracks show the musicians at their best, the opening "All Through the Night" spools out into a very lengthy investigation of the standard, with Wilson's tart alto and Barth's full bodied pianism making the most of the open ended format.
Bud Powell's bebop anthem "Wail" was an excellent performance, taken at a very fast pace and showing the agility and imagination of the duo, they move through the bebop chestnut with a great deal of energy, injecting some much needed energy into the proceedings.
This is a living room concert that was recorded live and echoes/ continues the spirit of Saxophone-Piano duos in jazz (a la Stan Getz-Kenny Barron, Joe Lovano-Hank Jones, Desmond-Brubeck, etc).
