Parker, William / Stefano Scodanibbio - Bass Duo
"Bass Duo presents the historic and only performance meeting of these two renowned and innovative bass masters, each representing distinct musical traditions; each fully committed to the summit at hand. It was recorded during the Udin&Jazz 2008 Festival in Udine, Italy. Both William Parker and Stefano Scodanibbio are composers and improvisers possessing a deep sense of musical poetry, organic inventiveness, and personal style. During his too short lifetime, Stefano Scodanibbio (b. 1956 / d. 2012) was renowned as an interpreter and collaborator with many of the major composers writing for the contrabass (Bussotti, Donatoni, Estrada, Ferneyhough, Frith, Globokar, Xenakis)."
