This review is from: One Great Night Live (Audio CD)
It's difficult to say anything negative about this group especially after so many excellent records - something like 10 in all? The group goes through many types of music some of it free-ish, although the 'free' label stuck on Ellery Eskelin is a bit of a red herring as far as I'm concerned. The record has 7 tracks of which 4 are tunes from the "Quiet Music" album and the other 3 from "Arcanum Moderne", both were released on HatHut, although maybe difficult to find now. The level of musicianship and playing throughout the record is impeccable, but for me it doesn't quite grab you as much as some of their other records did.
It's a little difficult to describe the music style of this trio and you'd be best advised to go and find a clip on YouTube to get the full picture. If you interested to discover Eskelin's trio try Ellery Eskelin : One Great Day... as it's certainly his best work with this band. There are others but unfortunately not in print at present.
One strange thing is that my copy of the CD won't play on a computer, although I don't understand why as it plays perfectly on the CD player. This is very annoying, and I'd be interested to hear/read if anyone else has had such an experience?
