Review: With spatial awareness, invigorating interplay and cross-conversational dialogue on the new disc, Lovano and Douglas project their respective strong artistic voices. Both in sound and improvisational approaches, the two offer fascinating contrasting and complementary sensibilities when they play in unison or intertwine improvisational lines. It’s the latter on which they engage the most; their passages tend to gambol around each other like sparring partners. As one takes the lead, the other often jabs their counterpart—pushing the conversational friction beyond rote hard-bop.
