about

Released in 2003, this is a collection of improvised-in-the-studio duets by Steve Lawson (bass and looping) and Theo Travis (alto flute, soprano sax and looping) - I think it's true that everything on the album was a first-take - we tried recreating some of the improvs at the time, but the first versions were always the best...

Very little of it sounds improvised - this was the peak of a particularly fertile time in music for me, and working with Theo was an amazing experience. Please see www.theotravis.com for more on his music...

Have a listen, and if you like it, you can grab the download, paying what you think it's worth...

about

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.

Pretty much all the music here is 'Pay What You Think It's Worth', so listen as much as you like, & do what it says on the tin...

As the website strap-line goes, it's the soundtrack to the day you wish you'd had.
