Description

'Now' brings together two maverick voices of contemporary improvisation in an engaging, open-hearted conversation. Collaborating as a duo for the first time, pianist Gary Husband and guitarist Alex Machacek opt for a spare, stripped-down approach that highlights their intuitive, borderline-telepathic interplay across a programme of original compositions.

Whether locked in dazzling unison runs or gracefully yielding to evocative, sparse passages, Husband and Machacek prove to be both formidable performers and remarkably attuned listeners - making their collaboration a vibrant, exchange in which one voice supports, enhances, and enriches the other.

Among the most renowned musical minds of Britain's fertile post-fusion instrumental improv scene, Gary Husband has won equal acclaim as a drummer, composer, and pianist - having performed and recorded alongside such visionaries as Allan Holdsworth, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Jack Bruce, Billy Cobham, Andy Summers, Mike Stern, and many more. Hailing from Austria and now based in Los Angeles, guitarist Alex Machacek has rapidly emerged as a vital force in contemporary fusion circles as both a quick-witted improviser and a startlingly original composer.

Personnel: Gary Husband (piano), Alex Machacek (electric and acoustic guitar)
