CD from the "Touchstones" Series.
“Jan Garbarek is my favorite sax player,” Miroslav Vitous has said. “We have an incredible musical rapport and you can hear it. He understands my Slavic melodies and what I use for atmosphere because he’s European and his father was Polish, which is very close to me. I’m from Czechoslovakia. Our musical communication is astonishing: we each sense what the other is about to play.” Atmos, recorded 1992, features seven compositions by Vitous and two freely improvised pieces, yet sounds like the product of a shared mind, so well-matched are the expressive approaches of bassist and saxophonist.
