Reviewed 2002-08-30 
Leimgruber is a Swiss saxophonist I'm not all familiar with. He plays with great control that reminds me a bit of John Surman and Ned Rothenberg.

He duets here with highly subtle (and Swiss) percussionist Hauser. Highly recommended.

1- Hauser establishes steady beat and Leimgruber complies with rhythmic spittles but this gets freer and freer

2- Simple xylophone figure repeated with isolated, gentle phrases on soprano

3- Nice, light pots-and-pans by H.

4- Abstractly swinging drums and Parkeresque (Evan, that is) sax

5- Considerably more abstract and pointillistic

6- Tightly controlled honking, squealing and rumbling with broken-clockwork percussion

7- Longer piece with some impressive extended techniques, very meditative, inward

8- Distant thunder of pots-and-pans; other very nice, subtle percussion; long sax tones; stretches of very quiet subtle playing
