Henry Grimes and Rashied Ali convene on this magical
live recording that holds aloft Henry’s bass and violin, highlighting his recent pointilisms, ringing with the shock-by-shock
rebound of the spaces between, each dyad and sweep echoing with command and authority. Below, above, in perfect tune
and time, Rashied lays foundations, constructs edifices of rock and crystal that ebb and flow with the malleability and gliding
susurrations of melting snow. Moving the many-sided sculpture, bass drum thunder gently queries and booms answers.
Sadly, this was the final collaboration of these two master musicians, as Rashied Ali passed soon after the recording
of “Spirits Aloft".
