O’s Notes: Billy Bang is a legendary violinist and Bill Cole a master reedsman. They combined for a free flowing improv session at the University of Virginia during April 2009. It was a creative, electric session. Cole plays flute, shenai, digeroo, nagaswarm and sona. Those who aren’t lovers of avant-garde needn’t sample this one as there is a minimum of structure and at times it is even abrasive. But there is an abundance of creative juices flowing that generated excitement and will make this a treasure for their select audience.
