Lazaro Vega Posted August 2, 2017 Report Share Posted August 2, 2017 (edited) In August 1961 drummer/bandleader Max Roach represented the civil rights movement in sound with a band moving into a unique rhythmic soundscape – Eric Dolphy and Clifford Jordan on woodwinds; Booker Little, trumpet; Julian Priester, trombone; Mal Waldron, piano; Art Davis, bass; Roach on drums plus two percussionists and the voice of Abbey Lincoln. “Tender Warriors” is a lyrical, haunting, consonant theme featuring Dolphy’s flute. After an innocent sounding trumpet solo, Dolphy’s bass clarinet interrupts in distressing dissonance – youth and experience represented symbolically in sound. This classic recording is featured in the first part of each hour of Jazz From Blue Lake Lake found under “Programs” here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand Edited August 2, 2017 by Lazaro Vega Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
