"A record like nothing else I've heard all year, and another important reason for paying
attention to what's going on in Europe. Highly recommended.

Thomas and Dieter have developed a language totally their own by incorporating elements
from the jazz canon along with aesthetics from contemporary music. In combination with
their superb instrumental skills, this mix led to performances in many European countries
as well as a tour of India and the US for the Goethe Institute. They recieved the Jazz-Art-
in 2002 and the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik in 1990.
