This piano and percussion duo offers a solid and imaginative hour of improvisation over two multi-part suites and one long tribute to Benno Trautmann. Dietrich Eichmann has recently come back to the shores of improvisation after a prolonged period of compositional study with Wolfgang Rihm. His ideas of pacing, dynamic, and cadence inform the proceedings here, fully articulating the form while playing completely spontaneously. Likewise, Jeff Arnal, who has spent the last few years improvising in live duos with saxophonist Charles Gayle, always walks the tightrope, playing instinctively and with great surprise in knotty dynamic situations. He understands the implicit directive that the music gives to play around his collaborator as much as through him. As the pieces unfold, there are wonderful surprises, disconcerting moments, and, of course, eternal movement through the terrain of jazz, classical, and other musics that serve as touchstones for their joint creations.
