Mal Waldron Quartet live at Bim Huis ,Amsterdam oct 27 2001 , flac



Heres another great Waldron share by ZERO, Who believes we need to liven up!!
this is a stunning set featuring sean bergin , and arjen gorter musicians one associates more with the european avant /free scenes.
my feeling is that they are creatively inspiring waldron to take more chances, and include some of his more interesting tunes in the set list.

bergin here, tonally has more in comon with classic tenors like Hawkins ,and a later hard bop master Clifford Jordan than on some of his own projects, though clearly the influence has always been there.

those who love mal's tougher darker hued pieces based around funky driving ostinato patterns will have a ball.
for those in doubt ive uploaded my favourite track as an mp3 taster

many thanks to the original seeders/tapers / of this exellent fm broadcast.
and to ZERO

"I uploaded the other Mal 2001 show a while ago but didn't want to add to your DL burden at that time. Then I proceeded to forget about it ...... until now. Details are below. Another knock-out from the same quartet."

In case anyone missed it and wants to hear what this same crew sounded like a couple of months earlier, here they are at the Middelheim Jazz Festival. Again, thanks to the taper and original uploader.

Man this guy was brilliant! No technique, just dripping raw, beautiful soul. Every time I think I've got all the great Waldron, something like this pops up. It's a good problem to encounter!

Thanks!

Thank you. I've been puzzling for a while over how Mal had recast Jean-Pierre, and now, thanks to your generosity, I can solve the puzzle.

Hookfinger said...

Anyway I was bumping around looking for something else when I ran across this. You do yourself proud man. Always supplying treasures. Many many thanks.
