Getting Away With Murder

(Eremite - MTE007) Used CD $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

“Two musicians recorded down in New York’s subway [in February 1995],” explains Ben Watson, “And, surprise, surprise, they’re playing excellent jazz. Bruno uses brushes on his busker’s pared-down kit: a glorious, intricate waterfall of beats. Tenorist Mateen leaps in like a salmon, flashy and wise…. Mateen’s meditative, Lowe-like intimacy is just what is required [for this 45-minute improv]. When the sax lays out for nine minutes, Bruno’s fluid ebullience comes to the fore. Mateen’s concluding flourish lets in some subway ambience — train-door slams and commuter chatter — and the results are haunting…. Byron Coley’s sleevenote is, as usual, a gas.”
