O’s Notes: This is an unusual pairing with drummer percussionist Aaron Alexander and trombonist Julian Priester. They got together in 2007 to record these ‘spontaneous improvisations’. They met nearly 25 years ago in Seattle when Aaron was a student of Julian, the professor at Cornish College. They became friends and performed together many times but this is a reunion o sorts after 15 years! The dialog between them is great and they sound much larger than two. The mood is peaceful with lots of texture and depth. We can feel their gaming and friendship.
