Classical music, new works for piano and clarinet as well as improvisations of the moment make up this debut recording of the Amicus Music Duo of Vancouver, BC.

Purple patches are elusive musical moments, similar to a perfect putt, a silver-bullet delivery of a line on stage, or a brush stroke turned to unbelievable light on canvas. Although both Craig and Howard have very fond memories of their many gifted mentors, the notion of âpurple patchesâ was introduced to the Duo by an inspiring music teacher who, because of his caring enthusiasm, talent and wit was a purple patch of life himself. Whether in the Aria for Clarinet, the classics, or the new compositions and improvisations, the chase for purple for which all performers and listeners ache is always foremost. In recording this album, pushing the edge of elusive moments meant that all of the improvisations were totally unplanned, unrehearsed and each recorded in only one take.

Pianist/composer Craig Addy and clarinetist Howard Meadows have two things in common, the amicable conversations of a long friendship and a mutual, intense love of the human voice. Many of the selections in this CD have the same things in common. Whenever possible, real conversations between piano and clarinet have been the goal. As well, piano and clarinet duets in Craig Addyâs new compositions and arrangements aim to coax the singer out of both instruments.
