For Murray fans

"Though this is not an essential purchase, if you already own other essential records by Murray (like "The Hill," "Special Quartet" and "Ming"), "Real Deal" is as good a place as any to continue to build a Murray collection. These two jazz-avant giants play their booties off for 64 minutes. Murray is brilliant, of course, but Graves doesn't simply accompany him, his drumming challenges the saxophonist beat for beat, solo for solo. A particular favorite on this record is "Essential Soul," in which Murray basically turns his bass clarinet into another piece of percussion. This is a wonderful recording (reminiscent of the Max Roach and Anthony Braxton meeting on "Birth and Rebirth"), and definitely worth the import price."
