This album is promising an absolutely fresh and intriguing music. Osby's modern energetic and acoustic conceptual sounds will meet the melodic European influences of Tineke. A recording with two soprano saxophones has almost never been done before; it’s pretty uncommon. Intriguing mix of male and female ingredients from Greg and Tineke will show that times have changed and jazz is not a male dominated music style anymore. Greg Osby was Tineke’s mentor once, now Greg admits, they are peers and he has a lot to learn from her. It is a multicultural project uniting the greatest young musicians from the NYC scene, the Netherlands and Australia.
Besides all, this is the first album of Tineke in the last 3 years and for the first time she records as a co-leader with Greg. This album will show her new musical developments influenced by her long stays in NYC and performances with top artists of the USA jazz scene.
