A duo album released in 1987 by the American pianist Richard Beirach and the American guitarist John Abercrombie, both of whom have left numerous masterpieces on ECM. The album features a fantastic forward-looking soundscape reminiscent of Jon Hassell on A1, and the title track B1 takes the listener into an avant-garde exploration that evokes the illusion of wandering into a maze. Abercrombie, employing guitar synthesizers extensively, creates a deep and expansive sonic landscape throughout the entire album, making it hard to believe that it's a piano and guitar duo. It's a wonderful piece of art, highly recommended for its immersive and unique soundscapes.
