FREE IMPROVISATION – Michael Tracy and Philippe Geiss.
Recorded at Akademia Muzyczna in Poznan, Poland. December 2023

Philippe is a outstanding saxophonist and educator. He and I met at the 5th International SaxEvent in December. Philippe enthusiastically embraced our playing together, so much so that we did so a second time just minutes following on the evening concert. Not often do you get to hear sopranino.
