FMP #12: They Play

A treat: the rarely heard trombone/drums duo of Christmann and Schönenberg, captured in 1973. Known perhaps more readily as two-thirds of Rüdiger Carl Inc. (“known” being a relative commodity), we here get the unalloyed joy of a two-way conversation between a pair of thoughtful, eloquent improvisers. At first Schönenberg seems the more introverted, with Christmann exploring the full range of timbres and sounds his instrument can generate. But the roles often switch places, with no one firmly adopting the role of “leader.” If you’re looking for compelling musical dialogue, we urge you to purchase a copy of this!
