Drawing on a staggering collective palette of textures, timbres, gestures, and sheer technical virtuosity, Brown and Levin create music that is astonishingly engaging, original, and exciting. Their unique language and rapport was already evident on the duo’s first record, “Natural Disorder” (Not Two, 2011). Now, on “Divergent Paths”, we find that the intimacy, clarity, conviction, and depth of their conversation has greatly developed, producing a thrilling experience for the listener.
Here we have a document of a very special Sunday afternoon performance at Salão Brazil in Coimbra, Portugal. In fact, the duo was not initially scheduled to play in the afternoon at all, but at night, two days prior – instead, they were stuck in Poznan, Poland, having been booked on a flight that apparently no longer existed, according to the airline. A new itinerary was improvised, which resulted in this happy ending.
