Glen Hall, soprano & tenor saxes, flute and bass flute; Bernie Koenig, drums and vibraphone.
This first SLAM CD by Canadian duo Hall and Koenig is a studio recording from August 2013 with 11 tracks of impromptu improvisation and "For George", a Koenig original. The improvised tracks bear titles taken from typical snippets of overheard conversation as would be heard in a bar or restaurant; the mood of the music reflecting the snatched phrase.
The ‘George' in Koenig's composition was Gershwin, who was also a topic of an overheard conversation
Within the confines of the wind and percussion combination the duo explores a surprising range of textures and composition extended by their choice and range of instruments in different combinations.
