Tom Bourgeois (tenor saxophone and bass clarinet) and Fil Caporali (upright bass) use all of their melodic and rhythmic freedom to create a rich musical discussion with a wide range of sound textures, harmonic colour and counterpoint. The intimate connection of these two musicians and their Hitchcockian inspiration pervades this album, as it's name suggests. We can make out, in Caporali's groaning bow strokes and Bourgeois's laments, hints of Bernard Hermann and Bela Bartok. The recording includes four compositions apiece and two covers (Milton Nacimiento/Ronaldo Bastos and Kenny Wheeler), punctuated by short interludes, co-written by the pair. A profound mastery of their craft and a brazen adventurous spirit is displayed throughout as they move between heavy tensions and weightless flurries.
