free jazz improv duo


Glen C. Halls, piano. Mark Hundevad, vibes.

This recording presents pianist Glen Charles Halls in duo improvisation with percussionist-vibraphonist Mark Hundevad. The improvisation moves through arpeggiation textures, to the exchange of lines, with attention given to the 'sustain' of sonorities. The two meander this way and that, taking turns leading. Occasionally textural counterpoint emerges with piano and vibes alternately playing parallel fifth gestures.

It is an interesting sound as the vibes sits slightly higher in register than the piano, and has a similar timbre in many respects. The playing is very fast and confident at times, with many changes in direction and intensity. You might call the playing 'virtuosic' in some respects... the lines are very fast!
