Vieles Ist Eins
Contrabassist Joscha Oetz presents a collection of improvised music in solo and duo settings culled from his creative investigation of this form over the last two and a half years. Oetz is joined on this cd by renowned bassist/improviser Barre Philips. Since their initial meeting in 1995, Oetz and Phillips have continued to build a musical relationship ( the duo which they call "Two Generations of Contrabass") whose particular sound is captured on these recordings for the first time. Also featured are three of Oetz's solo performances, a piece recorded in Germany with saxophonist Andreas Wagner, and a collaboration with percussionist Greg Stuart produced in San Diego.
