Chico Freeman – The Pied Piper

Chico Freeman

Questo disco è abbastanza introvabile, ma vale sicuramente la pena trovarlo, è un disco pieno di carica; ha un’intensità che raramente si trova, da notare è il contrabassista Cecil McBee che sembra veramente una forza della natura e nel pezzo di “Softly As in a Morning Sunrise” suona il tema con una intensità inaudita. Alla batteria il grande Elvin Jones e al piano ‘immancabile Kenny Kirkland.

Elenco Brani:

  1. The Pied Piper
  2. The Rose Tattoo
  3. Blues On The Bottom
  4. Monk 2000
  5. Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise
  6. Amor Soña Dor

Chico Freeman (tenor, alto, sopranino and soprano saxophones); bass clarinet, bass flute, C flute); John Purcell (alto and baritone saxophones, oboe, alto flute, piccolo); Kenny Kirklan (piano); Cecil McBee (bass); Elvin Jones (drums)
