Aaltonen, Juhani & Heikki Sarmanto
TUM, 2012, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Avant Garde
O’s Notes: Juhani plays sax and Heikki is a pianist. They have played together in various configurations for over fifty years! So it comes as no surprise that they are linked at the hip for this series of duets. They play originals, some old, some new with a couple of covers over two discs. Most were recorded on the first take to preserve spontaneity and they are successful I that vein continuously feeding off of each other. Conversations is a solid example of communications, free jazz expressed in a peaceful manner.
