Andrew Cyrille / Mark Dresser / Marty Ehrlich
Jazz Magnet, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Latin
O’s Notes: This trio of talent features the creative genius of Marty Ehrlich playing most of the lead melodies on sax, clarinet and flute. Mark (b) and Andrew (d) also share in writing these ten new compositions. The program moves from the lazy feel of “A Simple Melody” to eclectic blends and daring forays bending notes as on the title track. The recorded music benefits from numerous live sessions at New York’s Knitting Factory. It’s tight and well coordinated while emanating the musician’s creative juices. The result leaves listeners with a fresh dose of free jazz!
