Tony Bianco and Paul Dunmall at the Vortex in London

By Published: February 9, 2009

Both saxophonists paused, allowing Bianco, teeth clenched, to pulsate and flicker in solitary splendor, with the two reedmen swaying in time to some half implied rhythm. Dunmall rejoined for a short duet with the drums, before his quietening lyrical lines prompted Levin to weigh in, each egging the other on, echoing trills and short bitten phrases, in a saxophone whirlwind, which closed to enthusiastic applause from the small but discerning audience. A short duet by Levin and Bianco closed what had been a very potent evening's music, as well as a chance to check out one of the less-exposed lights on the London scene.
