Adam Schatz and the Search & Restore dudes have been trying to inject new life into local jazz presentations for a few years, and this program of ever-changing duets is a sweet idea. An artist begins a soliloquy, and every five minutes another artist joins in for a curt exchange. The preceding partner then exits, making way for yet another improviser: a provocative chain of events that's bound to head in unpredictable directions. The list of participants stretches from bassist Reid Anderson to drummer Matt Wilson to brassmeister Steve Bernstein--20 players hooking up in a random manner. I wanna see DJ Logic connect with Henry Grimes. You?
