Two leading lights in the Canadian Improv scene descended on Nepal on invitation, to play the Jazzmandu Festival, and this fine recording is the result of two concerts that they gave to the very welcoming and enthusiastic local contingent. These 11 improvisations capture the two players in fine song, delivering performances that embraced the love and spiritual energy that greeted them upon there arrival. An energy that will never leave them, and one that will hold the listener’s attention for a long time to come!!
