Intersecting Parallels is duo recording of improvised pieces and is the culmination of a musical relationship of more than two decades. When Krzysztof arrived in Chicago from Poland he was already a young virtuoso protégé of Krzysztof Penderecki with extensive experience in contemporary classical/European music. After arrival he soon began digging deep into the storied Chicago jazz and improvised music scene. This is when he met Dan who had recently arrived in Chicago after several years in the NYC scene and was putting together various original music projects many of which included Krzysztof. They have since performed together in nearly every setting from the festival stage, tours to club dates. They are also on more than a dozen recordings together including Chicago Edge Ensemble, Quartet Next, Dan Phillips Trio, Quartet and more. However, this duo recording is their first truly collaborative project and the results should and will speak for themselves.
