Jim O'Rourke & Mats Gustafsson – Xylophonen Virtuosen (Trost, 2LP/CD/digital)

Anything you need to know about this legendary duet between Jim O'Rourke and Mats Gustafsson, from which only excerpts were first released in 1999:

1. although they called the resulting album »Xylophonen Virtuosen«, they play tenor saxophone, flute, flute and, uh, junk (Gustafsson) as well as guitar, accordion and, well, some more junk (O'Rourke).

2. the record is dedicated to Derek Bailey, of course.

3. this is a no-brainer not only because of 1. and 2., but also because of the music.
