Piano duo of Dave Stapleton and Matthew Bourne features seventeen episodic tracks - some clipped fragments, others stunning miniatures - all linked by a seventeen line poem by Julie Tippetts. Each line provides a title, while together Julie's words have all the elegant simplicity of a Japanese Haiku with lines where syllables would otherwise be. For this is music of combining talents and visions. Simple and stately like the poem that accompanies it, as much the result of European Art Music as of Jazz, as inspired by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett as by Shostakovich, Ravel and Bach.
