Clarinetist as a world music pacemaker. Removed from his early jazz and meditative phases, while combining aspects of both with African rhythms and Charlie Parker inflections. "African Bird Suite" is a modal stunner. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi
I discovered this music as an LP, 20 years ago and was heartened by it's availability in this format. It's worth it for the price of the "African Bird" suite alone. Tony Scott, a jazz musician from the 50's, left the states and traveled the world. He ended up being based in Rome. He traveled to the Africa and the East. He never forgot the influence of Charlie Parker and this music was a sign of that appreciation. Buy it.
