What do you get when you pair a veteran, avant-garde superstar reedman with an abundantly talented young mainstream drummer? Your guess is as good as ours. Peter Brötzmann's sound on tenor saxophone, clarinet and taragato is one of the most distinctive, life-affirming and joyous in all music. "The huge, screaming sound he makes is among the most exhilarating things in the music," writes Brian Morton, "and, while he has often been typecast as a kind of sonic terrorist, that does insufficient justice to his mastery of the entire reed family." Nasheet Waits is a musician who has an intuitive understanding of the complex rhythmic requirements of modern drumming. His interest in playing the drums was encouraged by his father, legendary percussionist Frederick Waits. Besides being a member of various bands led by Andrew Hill, Waits is a member of Fred Herch's trio, and Jason Moran's Bandwagon. Richard Cook calls the young drummer "... a terse, unflappable player who sounds remarkably mature and seasoned. Waits has the dark, copper-bottomed sound of his creative ancestors."
