Ellery Eskelin / Sylvie Courvoisier - Every So Often mp3 album
The quirky, patient, thoughtful improvisations of tenor saxophonist Ellery Eskelin and pianist Sylvie Courvoisier are quite worthwhile as single-minded, individualist expressions. During Every So Often, the focus of these two extraordinary players comes about clearer and cleaner through the speakers, testament to a successful partnership. Courvoisier seems to favor leaner sounds, and is willing to explore the inside strings of the piano further, while Eskelin builds phrases and note clusters through a process that defies gravity
