Special thanks to Ariele Monti, his crew, and the beautiful audience that evening.

French double bass player, composer and improviser Joëlle Léandre needs no introduction. Her collaborations in the world of contemporary music and improvisation are countless and diverse. The names of Pierre Boulez, John Cage, Giacinto Scelsi, Anthony Braxton, Steve Lacy and Evan Parker are enough to get an idea of her stature. We find her here in the company of Pascal Contet, accordionist, in a concert recorded live at the Area Sismica in Forlì. The duo already has three albums to their credit and more than twenty years of common experience.

Crystal clear recording, direct music, deep understanding.
