Air (Threadgill, Henry/Hopkins, Fred/McCall, Steve) – “Air Song” – [Candid Productions]
“Free jazz” trio Air recorded these tracks in Chicago in 1975. Free jazz in this context is challenging but not grating. Tracks are all over 10 minutes long, but never long enough. Each musician has lengthy solos that are pure pleasure and mind blowing – I kept changing my mind about which one was the lead or for that matter, my favorite.
Notice that Threadgill plays a different instrument on each track. One example is track 4, a must listen for flute fans.
