5.0 out of 5 stars Soaring Surman and then some..., 12 Nov 2002
This review is from: Tales of the Algonquin (Audio CD)
This is a much under celebrated effort from 1971.
Great writing from John Warren for Surman and a fine collection of musicians. Fine ensemble playing with Surman sharing solo spots with Mike Osborne, Alan Skidmore, Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett and John Taylor.
The second track, Dandelion is a sublime, passionate ballad, featuring an emotional solo on alto from Mike Osborne. This may be the highlight of the whole album.
The second part of the album consists of the 5 part Tales of the Algonquin. Warren was inspired by a book of Native American folk myths.
It is all propelled along by the drummers Alan Jackson and Stu Martin, bassists Harry Miller and Barre Philips and Taylors insistent piano. Lots of intense stuff from all concerned.
I have as LP and CD. What a lucky boy.
