In 2008 Bruce Arnold and Andrea Quartarone joined forces to record an outstanding duet CD. Pulling from each other's repertoire and adding free improvisations their two different styles meshed into a cohesive sound. Throughout, each player listened and responded with great sensitivity, yielding a unique sonic interplay.
Some of the hightlights are:
"Heard Instinct," (title cut) a minor blues composed by Bruce.
"Mr. AQ" another blues reminiscent of the great Pat Martino compositions from the 70's.
Bruce's "Front and Back" a salute to Thelonius Monk with sharp edged melody and dissonant harmonies.
"Factorial" is a fast moving piece highlighting Bruce's use of shifting hexatonic harmonies.
"Trickle up," "A Short Minuet," "Cascade" and "Whirlpool" are spontaneous free improvisations that demonstrate the close interaction the musicians attained in the course of the sessions..
