Like Newton and the apple, Franklin and lightning, chocolate and peanut butter, David Tronzo and Reeves Gabrels, the passionate slide player and the renegade guitarist, seemed destined to run into each other and discover a thing or two about the universe once they did. The two guitarists, both widely known and admired as brilliant innovators and improvisationalists, were brought together by a mutual friend and as they jammed for hours decided there was a music that they need to play together. A music where composition and improvisation become one element, where no area is off limits in terms of vocabulary or influence, where one's instinct is one's guide. Tronzo, a member of the Lounge Lizards who was hailed as one of the Greatest 100 Guitar players by Musician Magazine, and Gabrels, the virtuoso player who leapt from obscurity to international acclaim as the axeman in Tin Machine, quickly formed a quartet that creates improvisational music which is perhaps best defined as 'avant roots.' Propelled by a complex blend of influences -- ranging from Bach and Ornette Coleman to Cream, Bugs Bunny and Buck Owens -- Tronzo and Gabrels are joined in their project by bass player Matthew Gruenberg who has worked with Henry Kaiser and Yothu Yindi, and drummer Mike Levesque who has played with Don Dixon, John Martyn, Peter Wolf, and Juliana Hatfield. Also appearing on some cuts is Billy Conway, drummer with Morphine.
