Up Close (1998)

Tony Overwater, Yuri Honing, Maarten Ornstein

Solo bass players have nowhere to hide; the connections are all direct - with the instrument - the musical idea - the listener, while the dialogue between bass clarinet, tenor sax and bass expands the range of possibilities into an intricate dance. Still, the immediacy of the performance must be morrored by the recording techique - pure, articulate - with startling dynamic impact.
