At first this sounds like some kind of folk tune played by alto sax and guitar. Then comes Ducret's improv, supported by Rainey's drums, and we enter another dimension. This guitar (doubled through re-recording) is really a rhythmical and sonic searching head, whose accelerations always bring surprise. When the alto reenters and solos while the guitar serves a mere rhythmical function, we are closer to a usual post-free trio, except that its energy borrows as much from rock as from jazz.
