Synopsis

Product Description
Red Mitchell had moved to Sweden in the sixties. It was there that, in 1969, Red Mitchell formed this trio: with a twenty-four year-old pianist just back from an African tour with Stan Getz, Bobo Stenson and you know what became of him later and the drummer Rune Carlsson, who'd played with musicians as different as Eric Dolphy and Bill Evans; the trio was indeed exceptional, but it was (very) short-lived, so much so that this album is the only trace of it.
Recorded during a visit to Paris, "One Long String" was the first album to do justice to the innovations that Red Mitchell brought to an instrument he was totally in love with... which is probably the truth, because they say he always asked for a room with two beds when he was touring, so that he could tuck his bass in on one of them... He tuned it like a cello, in fifths, and he'd come up with an astute amplification system that extended the sound of the notes, establishing a legato in the melody line that people hadn't heard before on a bass.
