Urs Leimgruber / Roger Turner Duo - The Pancake Tour

"The Pancake Tour finds Swiss saxophonist Urs Leimgruber and British drummer Roger Turner together as a twosome (sometimes referred to as The Pancake Duo), recorded in concert at The Loft in Cologne in October 2011. The sax-drums duo is a varied and demanding format which exposes each player to equal scrutiny, allowing no hiding place or time out. Instead, each member has to be full-on constantly, giving and receiving, and listening and responding; if either of them is not, it shows. Thankfully, Leimgruber and Turner are past masters of improvisation and here give an impressive textbook demonstration of the art of the duo."
