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."
