"Three duos and a Quaqua. Russell's monthly Mopomoso concerts usually end with him playing a duo -- this CD contains three examples. The guitarist's first duo with tenor saxophonist Garry Todd was in 1975 and appeared on a long deleted Incus LP -- this is a reunion 30 years later. An ongoing duo has been that of Russell and jazz trumpeter Henry Lowther -- not as unlikely as it may seem. Chefa Alonso, who plays soprano saxophone and percussion, is a new encounter for the guitarist. Also included is the nine-piece Quaqua that Russell organized for the 2006 Freedom Of The City festival with Nicole Legros & Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg (voices), Stefan Keune (alto saxophone), Philipp Wachsmann (violin), Ashley Wales (piano), Ivor Kallin (double bass), Javier Carmona (percussion), and Steve Beresford (electronics)."
