Carol Liebowitz & Nick Lyons: First Set

Seven of the eight tracks here are from a 2012 concert with alto saxist Nick L yons and pianist Carol Liebowitz. The last one being a 2007 duet. All the songs have a free form style of improvisation, with the left of center duets creating shadows on “Carol’s Dream” and “The Very Thing.” While Liebowitz’s ectomorphic work creates classical and pondering musings, Lyon’s alto gets quite gaspy at times on “Ephemera” and rasps through “The Very Thing” while sounding tentative on “Turquoise Echo.” The team lurks around “Roy’s Joy” before the team herky jerks through “Another  Time.” Duet another time?
