A titan duo of musicians come together for a recording on Douglas’ own label that pays homage in part to the compositions of Wayne Shorter, yet in terms of style, has all the feel of a retrospective re-examination of the early duets between Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry on both the Contemporary and Atlantic labels.
