Format: Audio CD
This is on of the more intriguing sets in the John Zorn birthday series-- Zorn had a pair of duet performances set up, the early set being a duet between himself and drummer Susie Ibarra, the later featuring Zorn and trumpet luminary Wadada Leo Smith. The first five pieces on this disc are duet performances between Zorn and Ibarra, the next four are split between two duo performances from Smith and Zorn and two trio pieces.

The styles are somewhat different between the two sections-- the Ibarra/Zorn duets have an amazing quality to them-- the two have played together frequently over the years, and it clearly shows here as their interactions are nearly psychic. Ibarra has no trouble keeping pace with Zorn as he moves through his seemingly endless technique, in both aggressive tones ("Meridian") and more laid back ("Spirit Writing"). Even on a piece where Zorn seems determined to lose Ibarra, fluttering, playing the horn without the mouthpiece, the mouthpiece without the horn, and displaying uncanny resistence to repetition, Ibarra gently supports with brushes, tinkling cymbals to every screech and bouncing gently on the snare to every flutter ("Visitation").

Wadada Leo Smith, one of the few musicians whose history and breadth of styles is comparable to John Zorn's, finds a way to inspire Zorn while at the same time himself seeking inspiration. Duets on two horns are difficult, but the two of them somehow produce what feels like a third instrument in their intertwining and a fourth in space.

If you love John Zorns playing, then you will enjoy this disc however, if you have been exposed to better improvisers then you may be disappointed. I just feel that the musicians here are playing it safe for the mics, and their playing highly caters to John's Sax Effects; lots of Johns presence. Susie is great and so is Wadda Leo Smith, but John is a better composer than player, and this recording proves it.
