“1990 was a “turning point” for me, both in terms of my private life and of my music. It was that year, in fact, that I decided to open up my way of improvising much more than I had in previous years. I felt that the time was right, despite current trends or styles. I talked about this with Marc...and he agreed to explore this new “musical land” along with me.

The concert we gave in Lausanne for Radio Suisse Romande was surely the peak of our experimental “new way”. I clearly remember that we hadn't planned anything before the performance, we just began to play, following any suggestion from our imagination, feelings and interplay. The results were the two suites now published here, which offer a mix of standards treated in a very flexible way alternating extemporaneous interludes or episodes.” - ENRICO PIERANUNZI

“Certainly this performance in Lausanne was the most clear example of the new musical conversations we were having. I am very happy that this recording is being made available and that those who listen can voyage with us down this foreign road on that day in Lausanne, and hear and sense what we were talking about.” - MARC JOHNSON
