Artists: Roscoe Mitchell (tenor saxophone, flute, piccolo, soprano saxophone, bass saxophone, sopranino saxophone, alto saxophone); Jens Joneliet (drums, bass and piano). "Illuviation is an attempt to start out and develop precisely from where it gets 'dangerous' for many jazz performers and fans, transgressing a certain tolerance level. Illuviation is also an attempt to cause seemingly irreconcilable stylistic directions and sound worlds to collide, but not to blur them mercilessly as in crossover or to allow one 'world' to force the other 'world' off the road, but rather to let each hear the other at the same time and to enter into a dialog previously considered impossible. As a guest on compositions by and with Jens Joneleit, free jazz legend and multi-instrumental virtuoso Roscoe Mitchell is heard here, opening up for the first time his full talent for a very different musical spectrum, thus confirming Duke Ellington's motto: 'If it sounds good, it is good.'"
