CKUT : yes, it is music.

What happens when two of free jazz's most talented names face off live in the CKUT studio? Mette plays sax and Chris plays drums, and he result is a beautiful cacaphony. It's the spirit of punk and the deft skill of jazz tradition. It's those fast high notes, spilling rapid-fire from the saxophone, overtop of clattering toms and minute bursts of cymbal crash. Rolling into the second piece, things get nice & sprawled-out, the sax blowing at less of a breakneck speed but adopting a richer texture before moving back into fast (and we mean FAST) territory.
It's unquestionable that Corsano and Rasmussen are two figured who have already carved out significant artistic niches for themselves; now, as a duo, they prove even further why the world should be paying serious attention to their sounds.
