:::Vibraphon #3:::

Posted: Friday, 7 January 2011 by jazzlover in Etykiety: , ,

An innovative vibraphonist who has traveled his own musical path throughout his career, Karl Berger is heard on this Black Saint release performing seven of his diverse pieces in trios with bassist Dave Holland and the colorful drummer Ed Blackwell. Many moods are explored; there is a feature for Blackwell and also a tribute piece for Ornette Coleman. Recommended as an excellent example of Karl Berger's inside/outside playing.

    An outstanding album!

    I have it in my library and it's one of the finest recordings from the 1980's.
    I don't know if you added scans to your file.I posted the scans of the album about a year ago at the "Cover Project" blog, So in case there's no scans included you can get it here:
