MAL WALDRON SEXTET "UNNA 1979"



This concert in northern Germany happened more than one year after "Moods" (on Enja) was recorded.
The line-up is quite similar as for this concert - only Manfrd Schoof plays for Terumasa Hino and <jimmy Woode for Cameron Brown.
All songs are also on the LP/CD - I recommend to buy the CD/LP if you do not have it yet.
For me it's a masterpiece.
You can listen to both recordings - a rare chance for examining the differences and similarities...


Manfred Schoof, trumpet, fluegelhorn
Hermann Breuer, trombone
Steve Lacy, soprano saxophone
Mal Waldron, piano
Jimmy Woode, bass
Makaya Ntshoko, drums

1. A Case Of Plue 4's
2. Russian Melody (Minoat) 37:22
3. Siege Haile 24:17


Recorded at the Theatersaal, Unna, Germany on October 10, 1979.

Note: track 1 + 2 are an uninterrupted performance.

Also, the amount of stuff you've taken the time to re-up is just awesome.
