Avis sur l’album

This was recorded at a time when the saxophonist's playing was at a peak — a year after his historic Coon Bid'ness, and the same year that Hemphill co-founded the World Saxophone Quartet. For this recording, he performs a series of four duos with cellist Abdul Wadud, a familiar and comfortable collaborator. The setting lets Hemphill stretch, his country and blues roots in full bloom.
