Last year the duo Joost Lijbaart & Wolfert Brederode surprised the jazz world with their debut album One. Although both artists have been enjoying successful solo careers for years now, and developed into indispensable sidemen of Yuri Honing ( Lijbaart) and Susanne Abbuehl (Brederode) no one could have suspected that their collaboration would yield such beautiful music. The fact that piano and drums isn't an easy and certainly not an everyday combination, makes their achievement even more impressive.
Brederode's impressionistic piano playing and Lijbaart's inventive, intensely musical drums and percussion play converge into one hypnotizing soundscape. The renowned Dutch author P.F. Thomése, with whom the duo recorded an audio-book, wrote in the CD's liner-notes: "This is music that takes your breath away. And to, breathlessly, disappear into."
