Joe Maneri & Mat Maneri - Blessed

I find this to be one of the most inventive albums in free/improvisational jazz. Rather than a full-scale attack of horns, drums, etc., this is a rather pensive, meticulous form of improvisation based on droning microtonal dialogues between tenor sax dad Joe and violin son Mat Maneri. The level of attentiveness and cooperation is just amazing. Highly recommended. 1998 cd on ECM.
