Reseña de álbum

A crucial element of free jazz that's difficult to explain to someone unfamiliar with and resistant to the concept is the fact that it's not just random honk-blat-phwee. At its best, free jazz doesn't just trash the rule book entirely; it merely expands the parameters of what a group of performers can do, especially with regard to rhythm. This makes the presence of a better than good rhythm section absolutely crucial to any free jazz combo; it's not a coincidence that Ornette Coleman's best records usually had Ed Blackwell or Elvin Jones on the drummer's throne.

These nine composed pieces are handled with the complete self-assurance of seasoned improvisers, giving Revelation the combination of structure and flexibility that the best free jazz offers.

He began playing trumpet in eighth grade, and shortly thereafter began taking...
