This CD can easily be divided into two parts. The first four selections are duets between Hamiet Bluiett (who is heard on baritone sax, flute, and soprano clarinet) and pianist Muhal Richard Abrams. Of much greater interest are the final two selections, both of which are unaccompanied baritone sax solos. "Solo Flight" is from the same concert as the duets, while "Requiem for Kent State" is from two years later. The latter is particularly wide-ranging, going through several themes and showing Bluiett's connection to the jazz tradition while being quite unpredictable.
