Illuminations features the late German bassist Peter Kowald
in a series of trio improvisations with San Francisco-based
musicians Miya Masaoka and Gino Robair. The session took place
during Kowald's extended US tour in 2000, which is documented
in the film Off the Road. In fact, the documentary includes
scenes from the studio session that spawned this CD release.
Recorded 26 April, 2000 by Myles Boisen at Guerrilla Recording.
