Although I'm still apalled - Marion Brown - Noah Howard and earlier this year Bill Dixon and Fred Anderson.
They were or better still are dear to me.
I wanted to post this already the day I learned from their death - but it seemed futile at that moment.
But here is it. The second solo LP from Herbert Joos recorded in 1983 at Tonstudio Bauer. The same place as for the MJQK and Formenonly recordings.
It's no dirge in the common sense - but to me it fits.
Solemn but at the same time life affirming.
I allow myself to dedicate this post to this four giants of creative music.
Bill Dixon........Fred Anderson........Noah Howard........Marion Brown
and to Frédito (aus einem anderen Grund).
