Muhal Richard Abrams Quintet - Live in Laren '78

This is (with the exception of George Lewis replacing
Anthony Braxton) the same lineup that recorded,
some months before, 1-OQA+19 for Black Saint.
From that album are taken the two long pieces here
performed as a suite.
A real "Dream Team"!

Rec. live in Laren, Holland, 1978
(radio broadcast)

Muhal Richard Abrams,piano
Henry Threadgill,alto saxophone,flute
George Lewis,trombone
Leonard Jones,bass
Steve McCall,drums

Yikes-this looks too good to be true. The lineup is a killer. Two songs to stretch out in. Thanks in particular, and thanks generally.

Many thanks. 1-OQA +19 is one of my favorites from the AACM so I'm really looking forward to hearing these live interpretations.

Your site is wonderful. Keep it up.
