Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-06-02 
Classical-minded improvisations duets of piano and violin/viola, quite serious in mood. Melford (piano, harmonium) and Kalmanovitch (strings) both play in jazz settings normally, so this is an interesting side experiment for them. Both are into Indian music -- hence some of the titles -- but that's not the dominant influence here.

1- Medium tempo, an exploratory little jumble
2- Delicate, dissonant; builds a strong mood
3- Slow
4- Perky avant-classical, high strung
5- Dramatic swirlings, fast.
6- Quiet, groany
7- Mid/fast
8- Nervous peckings; fast flow later
9- Gentle, slow
10- Fast, stern; very Russian sounding. Nice pounding piano.
11- Calmly mid/fast, romantic
12- Mid/fast, dramatic violin
13- Violin soloing over droney tones (harmonium)
14- A nice little tangle
15- Fairly quiet (prepared piano)
16- Grumbly
17- Quite, sparse
18- Slow
19- Slow harplike fluttering. Quite the classical feel.
