The rare duo setting between percussionist and saxophonist has only a few recorded examples, think John Coltrane and Rashied Aliís classic Interstellar Space. Inspired by a remarkable Village Vanguard performance, first time producer Max Koslow asked the legendary drummer Andrew Cyrille and saxophone luminary Bill McHenry to record an album for him. The resulting recording †Proximity highlights these two masters in the most intimate of settings performing pieces, some improvised and some provided by Cyrille or his peers, Don Moye and Muhal Richard Abrams.
