There’s Nothing Better to Do, is the result of a night stand in Tel Aviv.

One night that captured two musicians, playing together live for the first time ever, exploring each other’s playground. Teasing. Interplaying. Pushing and pulling.

Hemingway is well experienced in working in duos. He’s been playing with legendary pianist Marlyn Crispell for many years, with Anthony Braxton, Ellery Eskelin, Terrence McManus, Jin Hi Kim and others.

Beger, probably the most influential figure in the Israeli free jazz scene, played couple of months prior to this recording with Hamid Drake in Tel Aviv, and he often plays in changing ensembles.

***There's Nothing Better To Do captures a rare, immediate musical affinity, a breadth of shared musical vocabulary, and a mastery of free improvisation. Beger and Hemingway do not seek to explore obvious sonic avenues, choosing, instead, to explore themselves through this unique meeting. (Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz -
