Reseña de álbum
This was recorded at a time when the saxophonist's playing was at a peak — a year after his historic C**n 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. His poignant sound was never more compelling, and Wadud was a bracing partner whose emotional depth and extraordinary technique are unequaled on the instrument. While the music is largely free, Hemphill was so rooted in the vernacular of the common folk that his solos have an earthy feel throughout. The titles of the tunes are indicative of a somewhat abstract, ethereal approach: "In Space," "Pensive," "Echo 1 (Morning)," and "Echo 2 (Evening)." Yet, while luxuriating in the natural pleasures of the moment, Hemphill and Wadud adventurously and intensely navigate dangerous grounds.
