unlike any sax/ string collaboration ive ever heard. leigh and brötzmann never try to overpower one another, instead, collaborating as one and respecting one anothers prowess, with each leading the music at various points while leaving room for the input of the other. i do want to shout out leighs ability to create chaos with her pedal steel without resorting to amp distortion, its amazing. ronnie dion

Total mastery of patience, time, and drama create a constantly engaging journey that never gets tiresome or same-y: in fact the harder you listen the better it gets! Somehow Sorey et al. find a way to combine the deep listening and spontaneous interaction of the best jazz with the sense of every tone and sound being worth a universe of listening, which could be equally from Cage and Feldman or the accompaniment to an ancient ritual.
The recording/engineering is absolutely perfect as well. Giles
