Agbalagba Daada

Per Jørgensen and Terje Isungset just released their new double album "Agbalagba Daada" (NORCD 2008), where all tracks (except one) are imrovisations. These guys have been in the game for a long time, and the title of the album means "old wise person" in the Youruba language (but you knew that already, of course). Here you get a lot of playful impro, the pieces lasting from 20 seconds to 15 minutes.
It is almost too much music here, so don't take all of it in, in one sitting. A single CD with the longest tracks may have made a better album, but as a documentation about what these fellows are up too, it's great.
