Ingrid Laubrock (saxophones) and Tom Rainey (drums) are celebrating the release of their first duo recording titled And Other Desert Towns by touring the States. The duo's music draws on the several years and many projects they have shared since they began working together. Their experiences of playing original compositions, free improvisations and even standard songs inform this intimate setting of improvised duets. Between them, they regularly perform with Anthony Braxton, Tim Berne, Mary Halvorson, Kris Davis, Tony Malaby, Mark Helias, Angelica Sanchez and many others.

"And Other Desert Towns is showing well the paths of intuition they’ve established between one another. Rainey is consistently one of the most inventive drummers in New York (…) Laubrock is, as always, wonderfully lyrical and traipses about as freely as Rainey, occasionally matching pace with him but more often scurrying in circles around his quick figures."
