In this 1982 MPS studio release, two of Europe’s most renowned jazz-rock and jazz keyboardists, Jasper van’t Hof and Joachim Kuhn, grapple with experimental jazz-fusion that is stretched but doesn’t break; it winds, weaves, and intertwines. A fascinating combination of synthesizer experimentation, modernist piano chops, funky bass lines and “guitar” pyrotechnics. Highlights: Balloons: a venture into the electronic stratosphere. Bandundu: down and dirty synths and ingenious Congolese Tshokwe singer overdubs – funky Africa. Sushi: two masters of the concert grand battle it out. Confrontation as dance demonstrating it takes two to tango. An album for the uninhibited to dance to. Pop goes the avant-garde!
