About the album

John & John: searching...listening...finding…hearing. Just a few hours, right here at the house, mumbling a song title, telling a joke. Two seasoned musicians: the context was the concept, the individuality more than strong enough – improvisation. The longer you listen, the more you hear. Subtle interaction - musical conversation: The sound gets in and stays. John & John. Thank you.
A better definition than these poetic liner notes by Hein van de Geyn of this intimate chamber music-like jazz is hardly to give. The instrumentation brings a reminiscence to the famous recordings from the sixties by Jimmy Giuffre with Jim Hall. A similar heritage but the musical context is totally different: more introvert, lyrical and half a century more modern.
