The instrumentation belies a relentless intensity and focus that catapults the alternately fierce and lithe group sound into a wondrous aura of magical displays. Guerino Mazzola and Heinz Geisser deserve greater recognition, and, in a fair world, this release would merit substantial popular accolades. Geisser and Mazzola have collaborated together successfully for years, perhaps their most stimulating album the compelling duo performance entitled Toni's Delight — Live in Seoul. Here, they are joined by two heavyweights — electric guitarist Scott Fields and cellist Matt Turner — each of whom has slowly carved a niche for himself as an adventurous and sophisticated improviser associated with more progressive, and even radical, styles. Turner, like Mat Maneri, has helped to plow new fields for his stringed instrument, and, here, he sings and spars, dances and whines. When meshed with Mazzola's piano, the results exhilarate, with winding swirls (mazes?) connecting in odd places. Sometimes there is a disjointedness, but more often the blurring colors mesmerize with a shimmering beauty. Like a fire that appears smooth only on the surface, the real action is inside, where cello, percussion, guitar, and piano blend and separate, singing songs of solitude and camaraderie. The tight and serious results of this full-length recording should satisfy the most demanding tastes.
