The third album, Kinetic Conversations, is an extraordinary and rare find, a heady 100%-proof concoction distilled once and only in the off-hours of a March afternoon at the University of California, San Diego, in 1986. Let loose in the lab were two electric and eclectic and eccentric maestri: the Visiting Professor, Australian Keith Humble, on piano and electronics and Bunsen burner, and the Resident Professor, American Bertram Turetzky, on mortar and pestle and contrabass.
I snuck this CD on one night when friends were sitting in the backyard. No fanfare, no announcement. I was curious to see what effect, if any, the music might have on the listeners, a couple of friends with great ears and a love of fine music.
