Album Review

Simmons, Sonny – “Leaving Knowledge, Wisdom & Brilliance” – [Improvising Beings]

Hemroid The Leader   4/6/2016   CD, Jazz

Shamanic drone quartet gives 10 long tracks over 4 CD’s. Released in 2014 to celebrate Simmons’ 80th birthday. His English horn plays an Eastern scale, an incantation is heard, hand percussion, organ atmospherics or subtle electronics. Long reverbs. Commanding, ceremonial tone pervades throughout.
