Vinny Golia, the internationally noted multi-instrumentalist, composer, and bandleader, has become an important contributor to the vanguard of creative music. As a composer, he fuses the rich heritage of jazz, contemporary classical, and world music into his own unique compositions. Bertram Turetzky has been a key figure in the renaissance of the contrabass. Since 1955, more than 300 new works have been written for, performed by, and recorded by Turetzky. This makes him the most frequently recorded contrabass soloist in America.
In fact, Bertram Turetzky is one of the few performers in all of music history to have single-handedly created a large and impressive repertory of music for his instrument. In this second duo disc that the two have recorded together, these musicians stand tall together on an equal footing, creating improvised music that begins with little more than a nod and ends with a fully developed artistic picture.
