Lindberg, John – “Trilogy of Works For Eleven Instruments” – [Black Saint]

Hemroid The Leader   12/14/2016   CD, Jazz


Lindberg was in his 20s, had played bass in the Anthony Braxton quartet from 79-85, this 1984 date features Braxton conducting. Recalls Mingus, classical. “Holler” theme echoes Peter & The Wolf. “m to M” builds from bass-xylophone duet into trumpet&sax split-channel solo over lush backdrop. “Dresden Moods” passes thru bombs to rebuilding. Ensemble passages, duo and trio vignettes, intense, serious, impressionistic.
