Recorded live before a packed house at Sowieso-Berlin, this documents the meeting of Bushwick Series house band comrades Stephen Gauci & Kevin Shea, and Berlin's Liz Kosack & Dan Peter Sundland. Transcending both geographical distance & cultural background, this album is yet another example of the strong and growing bond between Brooklyn & Berlin's jazz and improvised music community.

This is tremendous stuff, one of my favorite albums of the year thus far. While I'm familiar with the work of Lopez and Cleaver and they are as usual excellent here, it is the work of Baczkowski that lifts this from being very good to being a year-end list calibre album. Fiery, propulsive musicianship with tremendous communication between the musicians.
