Product Description

Product Description

Pianists/composers Dave Stapleton and Matthew Bourne are musicians of catholic tastes, who move effortlessly between improvised and composed music regardless of genre or era. 'Dismantling The Waterfall' is a duo recording of short, breath-taking improvisations, seventeen episodic tracks all linked by a seventeen-line poem by Julie Tippetts where each line provides a title. This is music of combining talents and visions, simple and stately, as much the result of European Art Music as of Jazz, as inspired by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett as by Shostakovich, Ravel and Bach.

Piano duets in Jazz are rare things indeed. Hancock and Corea, Jarrett and Corea, Howard Riley and Jaki Byard, Bill Evans with himself! Perhaps their scarcity says something about Jazz musicians' reluctance to face the potential clash of egos that could so easily arise. For this partnership - and that is what it is - the parallels lie most immediately in Keith Tippet's duets with Stan Tracey. 'Dismantling the Waterfall' is a meeting of musical minds and improvisational values and a matter of light and shade, an album of short, breath-taking improvisations by two of Europe's finest young improvisers.

Personnel:
Dave Stapleton - (piano), Matthew Bourne - (piano)

Review

Both players are formidable generators of free improv...But the music often has an unexpectedly delicate charm. -- The Guardian, (John Fordham), June 6, 2008

The music spans minimalist tone-journeys and bursts of dense, jazzy improvising...dreamy reflections over fast ostinatos...improv-skitters and rhapsodic melody.
-- The Guardian, (John Fordham), June 6, 2008

Two of the UK's most exciting young pianists...reminiscent of Keith Tippett's duets with Howard Riley or Stan Tracey...restless imagination. -- Jazzwise, (Daniel Spicer), May 2008

Format: Audio CD
This is a great CD for getting into thought provoking improvised music, Stapleton plays excellent thoughtful melodies and explores improvisation in a very cultured way, Bourne's approach is more biting and direct his shards of notes skidding across the piano but never leaving the sense or meaning of the music - highly recommended
