The Telegraph album review: ‘rewarding’

In Britain, DeJohnette’s live album with fellow Chicagoan innovators Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill and Larry Gray is warmly greeted in the The Telegraph: “The range of expression these five players draw from their instruments is astonishing, particularly in Roscoe Mitchell’s ‘This’, where Baroque and bass flutes, piano and bowed double bass pace quietly in stately and sombre patterns. In Abrams’ ‘Jack 5′, the hint of blues that so often lies behind the ‘transcendental’ strain in black American jazz comes movingly into focus.” Learn more here.
