Passionate & adventurous jazz from Billy Bang's Quintet in 1981.,
This review is from: Rainbow Gladiator (Audio CD)
The distinctive jazz violinist Billy Bang(1947-2011) recorded this excellent quintet album on June 10 & 11, 1981 with Charles Tyler(alto & baritone saxophone); Micele Rosewoman(piano); Wilber Morris(bass) & Dennis Charles(drums).
This well-integrated band play six memorable Bang compositions and highlights include the lengthy title track, 'Ebony Minstrel Man' & the boisterous 'Bang's Bounce'.
'Rainbow Gladiator is one of Billy Bang's finest albums and a must for lovers of jazz violin and passionate, adventurous modern jazz.
