The sixth tape in the ASR “Versus” series pairs acoustic compositions from two of the best acts in contemporary American underground jazz. Side A presents a ferocious workout on saxophone and double bass by Chicago’s Mike Forbes and Andrew Young (both of Tiger Hatchery). Side B contains a solo drumkit performance by Cleveland’s finest free drummer, J Guy Laughlin (Dead Peasant Insurance / Puffy Areolas).
