FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE!
A deeply buried treasure from the vaults of FMP! This extraordinary piano and drums duet was one of the very first releases on the SAJ subsidiary label. A meeting of two masters in their unfettered prime, Mengleberg and Bennink deliver heedless and vibrant music that swings, stomps, and pirouettes. It's sometimes lyrical, sometimes destructive, and always fun.
Chicago sax luminary Greg Ward develops the dual-guitar frontline of his backing Rogue Parade quintet as an avatar for singular strength on this zesty collection of jazz-rock fusion songs. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 10, 2019
