Piano – Michael Jefry Stevens. Producer – Dominic Duval, Leo Feigin, Michael J. Stevens. Recorded at Acoustic Recording, Brooklyn, .
With the album being comprised of a single suite, this quintet showcases its penchant for developing harmonic ideas along microtonal lines and carefully articulated dynamics, with a sense of drama that linguistically illustrates whatever happens to be in each movement's title. In "Air," the opening movement of Elements, Stevens messes about quietly inside his piano while Duval does some gorgeously subtle arco moves and Whitecage utters breaths through his horn. All the while, Minasi cascades to the top of the fretboard in hushed tones and Rosen brushes the sides of his drums.

Minasi and pianist Michael Jefry Stevens met for the first time in 1995 while recording the Stevens-Dominic Duval quintet Elements (Leo, 1996). These two experienced and highly creative musicians kept meeting but Angel Dance is their first ever duo album. The joy and fun of the two is reflected throughout the sixteen short and concise pieces. Stevens compared the recording session to "two children inventing the most interesting games to play together. The two immediately form a deep and thick, always highly supportive interplay
