Let this wash all over you - a live freedom-loving stream of consciousness duo record from sax legend Dave Liebman and drummer Jeff Williams made in a New York bar in the early 1990s and not available until now. Just two tracks, each more than 20 minutes long, the raw recording has been cleaned up and remastered by Alex Bonney and sound quality is pretty good. Lieb plays like a demon ably accompanied by a lit-up Williams, never the most outrageously loud or extrovert of players, but whose style here goes that bit further and lands in the ''multi-directional'' style favoured by the likes of Rashied Ali down the years. If you ever grow tired of glossy massively produced recording sessions then this is the antidote and a welcome reset that draws us to the fundamentals of just what we love about modernistic free-jazz in the first place. If you enjoyed the work of Binker and Moses a decade ago especially on the record Dem Ones then this certainly will appeal. Find the time to listen to everything in one sitting for the most maximum, exhilarating, effect.
