Mal Waldron, Johnny Dyani

Live at Centro Jazz St. Louis LP

Label: Private

Format: LP

Out of stock

A rare and unique meeting of two master musicians, deep and mysterious at times. Recorded on October 27th, 1979 at Centro Jazz St. Louis in Rome, Italy. The musicians are Mal Waldron (percussion) and Johnny Dyani (bass). Limited to only 70 copies, so order fast! "A fantastic pairing of these two ultra-hip musicians – working together in a very open-ended, stretched-out live setting – with maybe an even freer feel than their better-known album together from a few years later! The music is relatively loose, but never too free as well – open, but very tuneful – and performed with the inherent sense of swing and soul that both bassist Johnny Dyani and pianist Mal Waldron always brought to their less-structured work. Mal is incredible on piano, but Dyani might really be the one here who blows us away – as he's shaping so many different sounds on his instrument, his creativity seems to be at an all-time high – with maybe some of the moments that he'd use with some of the freer British jazz groups of the 70s, but which were sometimes lost in the shuffle of louder sounds" Dustygroove
