Esce per l'etichetta Esp-Disk A Civil Right, nuovo album di Larry Ochs e Don Robinson a sei anni da The Throne, finora loro unico episodio discografico in duo dopo anni di concerti insieme e numerose collaborazioni in varie altre formazioni. Con grande soddisfazione di Ochs: "Our playing together has gotten to a really special place, I think. We’re definitely coming out of the tradition of horn-drum duos from John Coltrane & Rashied Ali to Wadada Leo Smith & Louis Moholo-Moholo, but we’ve found our own space in that Galaxy after a long stretch of shows together. The CD includes some high-energy playing and moments that are more spatial, as well as some homages to more popular music. In a duo setting like this, the music hits a listener right away – nothing is obscured, everything is clear."
