About the album

While Muneer B. Fennell is apparently not the most active cellists in the current jazz and improvisation scene, he is among the foremost pioneers and innovators as far as the musical development of this instrument in this genre is concerned.

This made and still makes Fennell a highly esteemed co-player of outstanding musicians, like George Benson, Jimmy Lions, Henry Threadgill, Doug Hammond, Steve Coleman, Jan-Paul Bourelly and James Blood Ulmer. The fact that Fennell has in the meantime tuned his cello with 6 strings further highlights his unrelenting desire to develop the voice of this instrument.
In Robert Jaroslawski on the drums and alto flute, Fennell has found an ideal partner for giving expression to his musical ideas and developments. Robert Jaroslawski’s playing renders an organic and fertile ground for Fennell’s complex ideas which are jointly developed by sensitive and individual playing.

Two strong characters, they are willing and able to engage in a sympathetic and productive dialogue about profound and essential topics of human existence – as can be heard on this recording. Their music is an outstanding contribution and a rich instrumental dialogue, in which each partner can, may and shall be vocalist, accompanist or percussionist. Two musicians alone – with cello, voice, drums and flute – are so able to develop an orchestral sound.
