Summer Snow represents the second immaculate Duo studio session from two of the greatest musical beings America has to offer the World. Our March 2007 über-expanded re/issue of their first Duo meetings – First Communion + Piercing The Veil: volume 1 complete – displayed their eternal prowess via intensity in full; drawing on musical traditions that span the globe. Summer Snow continues their masterful incorporation of the world’s music and reveals Parker and Drake in a beautifully meditative and equally mesmerizing state of creation. Eleven fully improvised sonic treasures in song that ought give wisdom forevermore.

Enjoy! -SJ
