Sunny Murray, cupbearer at the tables of kings; Alexander von Schlippenbach, keeper of keys to the treasures of the inner Tradition. he - looking in and out- makes all metals fly; Murray wiping the table, glasses ground to dust under his hand. both working in the halls of the Queen's castle; their courage as unbreakable as its walls: pouring the wine, opening the door.
This duet between Dutch pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach and vanguard drummer Sunny Murray is one of those records that makes FMP such a necessary label. This impromptu meeting between two giants of that "other" jazz world, the avant-garde, reveals with startling clarity the inherent musical courage it takes to play freely with another musician you have never encountered. This nearly 80-minute recording was done in one day in 1989. Here, von Schlippenbach abdicates his normal responsibilities as a leader and becomes a collaborator.
Background information. Murray's aim was to free the soloist completely from the restrictions of time, and to do this he set up a continual hailstorm of percussion. continuous ringing stickwork on the edge of the cymbals, an irregular staccato barrage on the snare, spasmodic bass drum punctuation and constant, but not metronomic, use of the sock-cymbal. with Alexander von Schlippenbach. with Cheikh Tidiane Fall and Malachi Favors.
