Sonomondo is an amazing record of sonorous string experimentation. Frances-Marie Uitti is exhibits her unique skill: a two bow cello attack. With her right hand, she simultaneously uses two bows on her instrument. Several artists employing this technique acknowledge her skilled inventiveness. Known for making new jazz and other post-modern forms since 1972 in collaboration with Andrew Cyrille, Bob Ostertag, John Zorn and others, Dresser is master of the double-bass. The duo improvisations here are stunning and spooky, sizable sonic creations that explore the outer possibilities of both instruments. Sonomondo is an invitation to an entire new world of sound.
