about

piano and tenor saxophone improvisations

After 27 years playing jazz together, Chris Conway and Andy Nicholls decided to do something they had not done before - record and album of improvisations. For Chris Conway this was alogical extension of his solo piano improvisation albums Glisten. Midnight Window Blue & Outside In.

They started recorded the first track Uncharted Waters casually when Andy visited Chris for a cup of tea. They then recorded tracks 2-5 on afternoon in the summer. Chris got busy for a while so they convened again in January 2017 to record 6-9.

On Open Skylight, Chris used an idea from his album Outside in and they played while 2 microphones were placed facing out of the studio skylight picking up outisde sounds of first rain, then birds.

On Magic Box they prerecorded themselves playing shakers, finger cymbals, chimes, and an old zither, then improvised over that. Other than that, the whole album was recorded live.
