What About

(Affinity) Used LP $10.00

Recorded in Paris 1969, Cyrille’s first session as a leader sparkles with amazing solo drum and percussion work — strong yet not so hard as to forego nuance. “From Whence I Came” incorporates breath and vocal sounds. “Rims and Things” is self-explanatory in its use of extended techniques, sound-sources and textures. Two more orthodox trap kit workouts maintain control of the progression of rhythmic and melodic ideas. “Pioneering” counterpoints snare and toms with whistle, slide-whistle and finger cymbals. 1982 reissue of volume 16 in BYG’s Actuel series.
