Don Cherry & Kryzystof Penderecki – Actions

November 7, 2004 at 10:19 pm Leave a comment

Just remembered this one because
was talking to someone about Pendereki.
Ye olde, and legendary, collaboration between
the serialist and the free-worldy-improviser

Still one of my favorites. Humus is as sweet as spiritual jazz’s
let’s throw every culture’s syncopation into jazz huzpath got
in the Cherry canon (I picked up MU part 1 & 2 the other day
another highlight) and Pendereki’s composition Actions just
makes the whole album shine. Indispensable jazz and good
fact towards nudging out the notion that Europe’s serious school
of composition couldn’t mix it with America’s free-spirited academy
of blowers. Also features Peter Brotzman on sax.
