You might think that a trumpet-drum duo is boring or tiresome stuff? Wadada Leo Smith and Jack DeJohnette's "America" (Tzadic 2009) will convince you that this does not have to be the case! This is varied and exciting stuff, and even if I'm a total amateur (you might have guessed that already I'm afraid), I doubt if it can be done better than this. I bought my copy from Tzadik, and they deliver real quick!

Don't forget two other trumpet-drum duos we have mentioned here: Magnus Broo and Paal Nilssen-Love's "Game" and Per Jørgensen and Terje Isungset's "Agbalagba Daada".
