Radu Malfatti & Klaus Filip - Imaoto (2009)

This is probably the most beautiful Radu Malfatti’s trombone has ever sounded on a recording. It is deep but not heavy, attaining, in Christoph Amann’s studio, a very personal, nearly vocal presence. Klaus Filip works miracles of intuition with his sine tones, seemingly knowing the precise harmonic answer even before the question is asked. The two are exploring a world of hidden contours and curves, quietly, step-by-step; never hurried, never tedious.
