The Wire 354 (UK) - Daniel Spicer
Erb / Baker „Bottervagl“ (veto-rec/exchange 006)

... two garrulous old friends arguing, occasionally disagreeing with vehemence, but eventually finding their way through to amicably shared conclusions. There’s a sense of truth-seeking and constant negotiation permeating these pieces. On „Tximeleta“ Chicago pianist Baker strikes out into melodramatic two-handed constructions, prompting sharp, darting interrogations from the tenor sax – as though Swiss reedman Erb is asking, „ are you sure, are you really sure“? before setting on a final, lambent reconciliation. On „Motyl“, Erb’s succinct, open-throated honesty confines Baker to inhibited, hand-width perambulations, eventually allowing him determined little runs up the keys that politely tuck back in at the last moment. Erb’s switch to bass clarinet on „Kupu-kupu“ signals a more introspective mood, to which Baker sympathetically responds with vulnerable, reflective ripples.
