Album Review

Abrams, Muhal Richard – “Things 2 Come Fr Those Now Gon ” – [Delmark]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   CD, Jazz

1972 reissue, a garden of earthly delights
tended by the supple wristrake and fingerplow
of pianist Muhal Richard Abrams. Petals
alternate with thistles throughout.
Operatic jazz call from Ella Jackson on #3
Dry drums culminate in gong splash #2 intro
Cranshaw’s vibe tone ripples on #5
Cascade of trinket percussion on #6
Dual drum pumping over amphetamine altos
after the splash on #2
Ari Brown’s impatient braying tenor on #4
Abram’s disso-synth textures on latter #6
One to grow on….roots of Chicago UnderDuo
and others can trace back to this.
