Martin Rude (Sun River) & Jakob Skott (Causa Sui) team up for a genre-defying record that was recorded during an exceptional session on March 3rd 2020.

Martin brought his Double Bass, Acoustic & Baritone guitar into the studio of Causa Sui, where Jakob's drums were already miked & prepped by soundwiz Jonas Munk, freshly tuned from the new Causa Sui recordings.

The music they played ranges from sprawled out pre-fusion electric jazz to psychedelic folk ragas.

After the sessions, the hours of free floating music was edited & dubbed by Jakob Skott into shorter cohesive segments, but maintaining the improvised vibe of these first takes.

It is a record that pays homage to the great innovators of jazz: Miles & Trane (or perhaps more fittingly their peak-drummers: Tony Williams, Jack DeJohnette & Elvin Jones), as well as Mingus at his fiercest or Sun Ra at his most exotic.

Not merely a tribute, the album doubles down with guitar pickings ala John Fahey & Sandy Bull, as well as sparse layers of oddly-tempered mallet percussion and synthesizers.

But perhaps the closest reference isn't something of a certain place in time, but rather a free flowing ethos of stoic proportions: letting happen what it may, turning the accidents and mistakes along the way into something vital.
