Rick Britto & Erik Van Dam
Avant-Garde Jazz Saxophone Duo
"Conversations with Erik & I" CD Release Party
Dueling saxophones help make Rick Britto's new album among year's most unique releases!
It is, without a doubt, one of the most original jazz releases of the year. Conversations with Erik & I is a unique experiment, two saxophonists engrossed in discussion, one that is told through the sounds of the instruments.
liner notes by Rick Britto:
An interactive "Conversation" using spontaneous communication between two saxophonists in a free jazz improvisation. The musicians use all the concepts that create an engaging conversation including Discussion, Debate, Small Talk or Chit Chat and Banter!
Rick says "When Erik and I decided to do this recording we were searching to communicate musically in a whole new way. We wanted our performance to be just like a conversation between two old friends! I sat down and thought of all the ways people converse with each other so we could incorporate all the approaches people use to communicate in a conversational manor."
