William Parker: bass, shakuhachi, slit drum, balafon, bombarde, dumbek; Hamid Drake: drums, tabla, frame drum, bells. "Way back in 1999 the vision struck AUM to bring William Parker and Hamid Drake into the studio to make a duo album; the proposal was made on the front steps of a church in June of that year. Hamid's flight from Chicago was booked shortly thereafter. The very first time that Parker & Drake performed together as a duo took place on April 1, 2000 at AUM HQ to a fully packed and rapt audience of some 80 strong. It was a magical Saturday night; the First Communion concert is here presented in its entirety/deeply fervent glory for the first time (and only here on this CD). On Monday the 3rd they entered the studio to record Piercing The Veil, which was originally issued in June 2001 to great acclaim and is herewith now beautifully back in print."
