Their first duo album “Dual Pleasure” was hailed as a masterpiece, and among others nominated for Norway`s Alarm Award. The sequel, Dual Pleasure 2 was recorded in the studio over two days in Oslo, while CD 2 was recorded live 2 days after the studio session at Kampen Jazz in Oslo. The result is “Dual Pleasure 2” , a complex and grroving piece of independent underground jazz. A clash between the highly influential and innovative Chicago and Scandinavian jazz scenes that started in 2000 when the group "School Days" was formed. One year later they started FME, a trio with bass player Nate McBride. After this it seemed very natural to define a duo. Vandermark and Nilssen-Love use free improvisation as a means to explore all levels of dynamics, density, rhythm, timbre, form and tonality. The results of their work are experienced as intense, exhilarating, and boundary breaking music with a brutal beauty. Check! Tracks 1.1 to 1.9 recorded 18th and 19th of September 2003, Oslo. Tracks 2.1 to 2.3 recorded live 22nd of September 2003 at Kampen Jazz, Oslo. There are index points in tracks 2.1 and 2.2 for the listeners convenience. Thanks to Heidi Skjerven for being the perpetual hostess. Thanks also to Jørgen Munkeby for lending the bass clarinet.
