This recording by a trio led by bassist Dominic Duval is simply another example of the remarkable strengths of this very special performer. Joined by Joe McPhee on soprano and tenor saxophones and John Heward on drums and kalimba, Duval steers the trio on 12 separate "Undersounds," which are generally short (mostly under four minutes each) free improvisations. As implied in the title, there is a quietness to much of it, though hardly a lack of intensity.
Biography by Chris Kelsey. An accomplished bassist whose reputation loomed large over the New York '60s free jazz scene. Nightbird Inventions. Dominic Duval, Matthew.
Undersound II was recorded on December 6, 2000, live at Casa del Popolo in Montréal. Bassist Dominic Duval, drummer John Heward, and saxophonist Joe McPhee opened their set with a 26-minute blast of free improvisation intertwined with fire music. McPhee's tenor develops a voice of its own, drawing the rhythm section into an endless spiral of energy. Where the first album by these musicians focused on short quiet improvs, here they let it out, without losing intensity or direction. Undersound 12" explores calmer grounds
Dominic Duval (c. 1944 – July 22, 2016) was an American free jazz bassist. Since the 1990s, Duval was active principally on the New York City jazz scene. He did not begin recording regularly until the 1990s, but since then had appeared on a very large number of albums, particularly on the labels CIMP, Cadence Jazz, and Leo Records. one of the most-recorded free jazz bassists on the planet"

Duval - Heward - McPhee: Undersound by Glenn Astarita, published on October 1, 2000. Modern jazz/improvising bassist Dominic Duval and the inimitable saxophonist, t Joe McPhee join forces yet again, along with drummer John Heward on this sprightly and altogether attractive release titled, Undersound. With this new effort, no two pieces sound alike. And other than two interesting solo bass excursions by Duval, the musicians dart, nudge and counterbalance one another as McPhee performs solely on soprano saxophone throughout the entire affair
