Magic Circle by Sam Newsome and Jean-Michel Pilc.
Label Link: Magic Circle
An album of Soprano Saxophone and Piano duets.
Newsome is one of the top, and most inventive, modern practitioners on the Soprano Sax.
Some standards and some original tunes.
I really like how both players mix in “out” techniques while remaining within the form of the tunes.
All the performances are great, but their take on Thelonious Monk’s Misterioso is particularly outstanding.
