First, the brass tacks: the trio of saxophonist John Butcher, vocalist Phil Minton, and guitarist Erhard Hirt is featured here in two separate gigs in the summer of 1995, the first at Musique Action in Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy in June, and the second at the Free Music festival in Antwerp in August. One can imagine the kinds of aural destruction these three are capable of because they've played together for years. Hirt 's two solo records are some of the most colorful and puzzling titles to come out of the electric guitar oeuvre, with his crayon box of effects

Vocalist Phil Minton, saxophonist John Butcher and guitarist Erhard Hirt, each have an astounding repository of sounds on which to draw. On Two Concerts, they transform their respective stocks into a music that is elastic, dynamic and playful. The trio’s quick banter and ability to echo each other frequently creates moments when the enveloping sound they initially think by one musician turns out to be made by one of the others.

Coltrane ’ s sound was just about the most exciting thing I ’ d ever heard, he told Marley. I was completely and utterly hooked on music by then.
