Matt Bauder / Jason Ajemian - Object 3 (Locust, 2003)

Yo dogz, it's time for some slooooow jazz from nice label locust and the chicago jazz scene.

From AMG (who I usually don't trust but here is a pretty straight forward description):
Bassist Ajemian and tenor saxophonist Bauder set up their mikes one night on the back porch in Chicago and recorded themselves playing a half hour's worth of quiet sustained tones. Local traffic noise and the buzz of various nearby insects were also captured on the tape, imparting a refreshingly natural feel, far from the pristine claustrophobia of a studio session. The first half of the proceedings was recorded simultaneously on two mini-discs by some friends in attendance, who inserted index markers here and there and subsequently played the resulting tracks on random shuffle. "Normal" starts out then as a duo and ends as a quartet...
Seriously underrated and underheard gem of free improvisation/quiet jazz/field recording. Both Bauder and Ajemian always bring the goods, Ajemian being probably the quietest bass player you've ever heard. Highly recommended for late nights.
