This disc accompanies bim-55, which also took place during Dadge's small tour of eastern Canada in fall of 2010. Following a bus ride, a fine meal at a local vegetarian restaurant, and a solo set of his own, Dadge had the good fortune of being paired with Moncton's Andre Bourgeois for two excellent sets of sax & drums. It's clear from the start of this recording that these two will have little difficulty finding common ground, not least because they seem to be operating along a similar plane of pacing and approach to density. There are a lot of notes played, but the ideas have fairly regular contours that move consistently throughout the shape of each piece. The majority of the playing falls into the free jazz territory, and while the odd extended technique surfaces here or these, the instruments themselves are mostly taken at face value, putting the emphasis on the playing itself. Reminds me a little of the stuff Eddie Prevost did with Alan Wilkinson a few years back. [A quick note on the final track - the recorder ran out just as the last track was ending, but what was there was deemed good enough to allow for the somewhat less than ideal presentation.]
