Two of Edmonton’s most noted champions of contemporary music team up for this occasionally spiky, always interesting sampling of possibilities — and improbabilities — for sax and piano. William H. Street is the saxophonist for whom Malcolm Forsyth wrote his Tre Vie: Concerto for Alto Saxophone. Roger Admiral was a co-founder of Edmonton’s celebrated Hammerhead Consort, and is a composer himself.
