Anything Good To Say About Andre Vida???

6 posts in this topic

I don't pay attention unless, and this guy is getting it on this Sonny Simmons record I'm listening to now. So, is he a nice guy? Or parallel importance, are there other records where he will likewise as on this one?

Never heard of him. Believe you that he's good.

I don't know Andre too well at all, but did work with him in a large Braxton ensemble in Berlin last Autumn, and he seems like a fascinating guy...and a hell of a player. I really enjoy his work on the Braxton Tristano-school stuff...he also has some very extreme explorations of the saxophone. I feel like I've heard some amazing solo stuff, but can't quite place where/when just now! But anyway, as I say: IMHO he's fantastic throughout this: https://newbraxtonhouse.bandcamp.com/album/quintet-tristano-2014

I have this

Not listened to it in some time, remember it as a difficult, challenging listen which isn't a bad thing in this house but does require the right moment.  I need to revisit once my bust CD player is fixed.

Which Simmons are you listening to?
