This is definitely a recording for very specialized tastes. American drummer Andrew Cyrille and Russian drummer Vladimir Tarasov (who was formerly with the Ganelin Trio) perform four drum duets at concerts in Canada and Oakland. Two of the collaborations are quite lengthy ("No. 11" is listed on the back jacket as timing in at 11:38 but is actually ten minutes longer) and there is also a pair of more concise duets. Although probably pretty impressive to see live, on record much of the musical magic is missing and there are not too many listeners that interested in hearing 56 minutes of drum solos.
