Rating: 85/100 (learn more)

These previously unreleased three minutes are the perfect conclusion to the compilation of 40 years of recordings that ACT published to celebrate Heinz Sauers 75th birthday. On the dark, haunting minor chords that Michael Wollny plays as an introduction, the deep, serene sound of the tenor sax soars, and takes the hymn-like song to a climax of intensity. This moment of pure beauty will undoubtedly convince the listener that its high time the talents of the underrated if not unknown sax veteran and of his brilliant young partner were rediscovered for the former, and promoted for the latter.
