Mopti - excerpt

Don Cherry, Masahiko Togashi, Steve Lacy

Live At Yubin Chokin Kaikan Hall Tokyo 1986 (LP)

Label: Victory

Format: LP

Out of stock

For this historical concert held at the Yubin Chokin Hall, in Tokyo on May 14, 1986, the legendary Japanese drummer Masahiko Togashi brought together an amazing lineup with such modern Jazz luminaries as Steve Lacy (soprano sax), Don Cherry (pocket trumpet), and Dave Holland (bass).  This particular album consists of four previously unpublished (on vinyl) tracks including some highly regarded Lacy's compositions such as "The Crust" and "Quakes" and the Don Cherry's African flavoured anthem called "Mopti". The Lacy-Cherry frontline flies over the agile, airy rhythm section of Holland and Togashi and the interplay between the four master musicians sounds loose and relaxed. This is a a must-hear for any Post Free Jazz fan.
