In the summer of 2013 the duo of Marilyn Crispell (piano) and Gerry Hemingway (drums) played at a number of prestigious festivals all over Europe. On their new album "Tables of Changes" some of the highlights of these performances are documented and put together as a coherent unit. With this album they continue their musical dialogue (Affinities, Intakt CD 177).The musical partnership of Crispell and Hemingway goes back to the 1980's, when they played together in a variety of Anthony Braxton's ensembles. They began touring as a duo in 1992. On this new release their interaction is subtle - they meet as equals. There is no virtuosity for it's own sake. The music ranges from delicate sound meditations to wild explosions, and from wonderful melodies to passionate improvisations. The two play with understanding and intuition - as though they were twins.
