Saxophonist Chris Kelsey and guitarist Dom Minasi perform a set of bracing, quicksilver improvisations.

"What happens with free jazz stalwarts saxophonist Chris Kelsey meets one Dom Minasi, the guitarist of the future past? A freedom lovefest, or course. Through nine compositions co-written by Kelsey and Minasi, the two demonstrate the psychotically-fractured temperament of the House of Ornette, John, Archie, and Pharaoh. The beauty of these often noisy and circuitous conversations is that free jazz is given its most basic definition, the actions of reactions of the least number of musicians defining what free jazz is...the influence of one another ... There is sense to free jazz. It lays in its calm heart.”
- C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
