The Groove Nashville

For the third installment of Ingrid Laubrock's duo series on Intakt (followingKasumi with Aki Takase and Blood Moon with Kris Davis) IngridLaubrock and Andy Milne develop their own sounds in a common soundworld. Fragile is characterized by the great empathy that unites thesetwo artists. The music, which is both stirring and soothing, confident andintuitive, is deeply expressive and inventive. "Laubrock's growth as anoriginal writer and improviser has been marked in the last two decades,during which time she has led several bands, notably Sleepthief andAnti-House, and proved adept at creating for large ensembles and smallgroups that revealed her own individuality, mostly within avant-gardetraditions. As for Milne he has more than fulfilled the promise he showedas a member of Steve Coleman's Metrics in the early '90s. The Laubrock-Milne duo has a balance between the drive and momentum oflarge ensembles and the stillness and engagement with silence andspace of smaller groups. Making music that releases a form of energy,something that pulses with life, while also drawing down into intimacy,suggesting feelings of tenderness or uncertainty, is no mean feat", writesKevin Le Gendre in the liner notes.
