Thomas ! Thomas wrote me one day and said to me to check out some audio called So long ago in Berlin... wow, i immediatly fell in love with that sound, really 60's and melancholic in a way... those were the rec. of a mini Tour that Norris Jones set up with his new sextet (2 gigs in Berlin/2 more in NYC). Sirone was one of the most respected bassist coming out of the New Thing, having played with all the greats: Albert Ayler, Archie Shepp, Marion Brown, Pharoah Sanders, Cecil Taylor, Noah Howard, Sun Ra... to name just a few; co-founder, with Leroy Jenkins, of the Revolutionary Ensemble too. a totally underrated musician and tough guy, who released only one album in the 70's under his name (a 4et date with James Newton), a privatly pressed one. so this is indeed a SPECIAL event and hopefully an LP who do more justice to an unsung artist. all the tracks are composed by him and are full of poignant beauty... particular mention'd deserve also Jason Hwang playing, a young Thomas Borgmann on soprano sax, not to mention great solos on alto sax and trombone by Steinhuis and Nobili respectively. a RARE jewel indeed from the old skool." ep
