This collaboration between drummer, pianist, and composer Jack DeJohnette and guitarist Bill Frisell, was recorded live at the Earshot Festival in 2001. But it doesn't end there. DeJohnette called in sound engineer Ben Surman, who added "additional production": basslines, ambient sounds, and other electronics and percussion. If you are raising your eyebrows in doubt, think again.

Drummer Jack DeJohnette, now four releases down the road with his Golden Beams label, turns to the archives for this historic live set with Bill Frisell. The guitarist first heard DeJohnette's music as a teenager in the '60s, though it took some time before they would first perform together on Don Byron's Romance with the Unseen (Blue Note, 1999). During the sprawling eleven-minute title piece, he builds from near-silence to floating, rippling, and sometimes tearing phrases with heavy country and blues accents. DeJohnette engages dynamically on the drums, riding the backbeat and anticipating his moves with occasional thunderous booms.

Ever since he first came to public prominence in the mid-'60s, drummer Jack DeJohnette has consistently dwelt in jazz's leftfield: whether as part of Charles Lloyd's psychedelic crossover band; in Miles Davis's epochal, proto-fusion outfits; or as leader on numerous 'multi-directional' ECM albums. Recorded live at Seattle's Earshot festival in October 2001, The Elephant Sleeps But Still Remembers documents DeJohnette's first musical meeting with another modern legend, guitarist Bill Frisell, and sizzles with the thrill of spontaneous exploration, with the emphasis on open-ended, non-idiomatic improvisation.

This is a session made for drummer Jack DeJohnette's own label, dating from a day off from Keith Jarrett's touring schedule in 2001, when DeJohnette grabbed the chance of a duo concert with guitarist Frisell at the Earshot festival in Seattle. The two had worked together not long before, and Frisell had long acknowledged the drummer as an influence. A significant third partner is UK saxophonist John Surman's son, Ben, who added bass-lines and ambient sounds to the subsequent production

The engrossing result is The Elephant Sleeps But Still Remembers, the fourth album and the second ‘Art of the Duo' project from DeJohnette's fledgling artist-run label, Golden Beams. DeJohnette and Frisell first worked together on Don Byron's 1999 album Romance with the Unseen. We immediately had a rapport, and we talked about doing more, DeJohnette recalls
