CD Reviews

An amazing historical document, bearing repeated listening
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you ever want to hear the real brilliance of Bird, check out the way he "thinks" his way through the bridge of Four Brothers the first time 'round, cautiously pawing at the changes. Next time the bridge comes up, Bird has internalized that bridge and sounds like he's played it his whole life! Otherwise, this album is a very pleasant listening experience. Don't be put off by the unlikely pairing: these two artists had enormous respect for each other. And it shows."
A must have historical document
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A historic concert worth hearing. Probably the earliest recording of pianist Dave McKenna."
