Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

CD Review: Mal Waldren Trio - Soul Eyes


Mal Waldron (pno);  Reggie Workman (bs); Andrew Cyrille (dms) + Steve Coleman (alto - two tracks); Joe Henderson (ten - one track); Jeanne Lee (vcl - two tracks); Abbey Lincoln (vcl - two tracks).
(Review by Lance)
I was lucky enough to win this CD in the raffle at a recent JNE gig and, compared to most of the review discs I get from near and far, this is akin to either hitting on 5 balls and the bonus ball or the blonde who lives across the street! So, with poetic licence, I will pitch this into the arena as a CD of the month contender.
It was recorded in 1997 - a very good year!
Waldron has  always been a fascinating player and, with assists from Henderson, Coleman, Lee and Lincoln,  this is a disc for the wannabees to listen and learn from!
It goes on the car player tomorrow - the highest possible accolade!
Lance.
