  • Description

    "Jan Garbarek is my favorite sax player," Miroslav Vitous has said. "We have an incredible musical rapport and you can hear it. He understands my Slavic melodies and what I use for atmosphere because he's European and his father was Polish, which is very close to me. I'm from Czechoslovakia. Our musical communication is astonishing: we each sense what the other is about to play."

    Atmos, recorded 1992, features seven compositions by Vitous and two freely improvised pieces, yet sounds like the product of a shared mind, so well-matched are the expressive approaches of bassist and saxophonist.

    Personnel: Miroslav Vitous: double bass; Jan Garbarek: tenor and soprano saxophones.
