Back in 1986 following a European tour, Bob Moses (Pat Metheny, Gary Burton, Rasaan Roland Kirk) and Billy Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood, John Zorn, Iggy Pop) recorded this music in Martin's 4-track, basement studio. This project features colorful and sometimes humorous compositions utilizing percussion, minimal keyboards and vocals. These percussion masters exude a playful, otherworldly and funky attitude for this first recording session together as a duo. This Mozown/Amulet release is greatly improved, remastered, and redesigned by the artists. This was originally released in Europe in 1987.
