Percussion duets including L.A. stalwart (and Vinny Golia/Nels Cline pal) Brad Dutz. Frequently carries an airy, mysterious feel, even on some of the faster tracks. Nice for atmosphere, a quasi-World feel, or for a different sound inside a longer set.

Many of the pieces are composed rather than improvised, so you'll find some punchy jazz melodies on marimba or vibraphone (e.g. 7,14). Don't worry; it's not all drums (although you'll want to hear the textured drum solo on #9).

1- Lots of gongs. Slow, spacey
2- Brisk tribal-drum piece
3- Lots of clutter/clatter. Slow start.
4- Strange marimba, then sparse solo
5- Cool fast clatter, then midtempo drums
6- Calm, sparkling. Fast hi notes at start
7- Fast marimba lines, also steel drums
8- Shuffly bongos. Small.
9- Deft, light drums, tribute to Elvin Jones
10- Chaotic vibraphone jazz. Slowish.
11- Lots of phases. Some fast, showy clatter
12- Mysterious
13- Some cool fast beats
14- Mid/fast brisk beat, marimba lead
15- Catchy hand drums, a very "world music" feel
16- More gongs!
