An unusual meeting of minds: German jazz pianist Matthias Frey and Indian pioneering world music percussionist Trilok Gurtu. Surely this is going to be an ethno fusion album then? No, not at all! Seems like Herr Frey had been listening to a lot of John Cage prepared piano works, or maybe Peter Michael Hamel, and Trilok also tends to do as much noise and clatter as he does rhythms! As with "Ohrjazzter" this is Matthias Frey trying to be anything but a jazzer.
