An encounter between two of the most open and imaginative musical minds today.
One way of understanding Keys And Skins is as soundscape. It can also be heard as a stunning demonstration of spontaneous creativity. That jazz musicians improvise is a given. That their music is sometimes entirely improvised is known. Yet it is startling to hear Baron say, “Antonello and I met at the session. It was very direct, very simple. We didn’t really talk about anything. We just shook hands and went in and they pushed the button. On a head nod, we just started.” (Thomas Conrad)
