Drummer Andrew Cyrille, who played with Coleman Hawkins and Ted Curson as a teenager, joined the Cecil Taylor Unit in the mid-1960s, and supported Taylor's sound for many years thereafter. This duo album was released in 1974 and features drummer Milford Graves, one of the pioneers who worked with Paul Bley and Albert Ayler in the early days of free jazz in New York City in the 1960s. Although there is no precise record of the sound source, the liner notes on the back of the sleeve indicate that it was recorded live as a result of Cyrille and Graves' musical activities that began in April 1969. The entire piece is 100% pure improvised percussion music that makes full use of a drum set and a wide variety of percussion instruments, and the primitive and organic performances of both musicians intermingle as they rise to another dimension. Highly recommended.
