Brutality and Rivival

The Best Jazz Records of 2001 - Gary Giddins
8. TRIO 3 Encounter (Passin' Thru)

Oliver Lake, Andrew Cyrille, and Reggie Workman unite with a kind of loft-era thrift, and everything works—the energy level high, the affect sparkling yet controlled,
and never a tossed-off moment. Lake's sound is a saw with inch-long teeth and thoroughly fetching; I'd love to hear him commune with Lee Konitz. |
