Sabir Mateen - Tenor & Alto Saxophones, Flute, Bb & Alto Clarinets

Frode Gjerstad - Alto Saxophone, Bb & Bass Clarinets

Steve Swell - Trombone

Clif Jackson - Bass

David Gould - Drums & Percussion




Featuring Sabir Mateen on tenor & alto saxes, flute & alto clarinet, Frode Gjerstad on alto sax & clarinets, Steve Swell on trombone, Clif Jackson on bass and David Gould on drums. As a leader the eminently lovable and immensely creative reeds giant, Sabir Mateen, records all too rarely. This makes this session all the more important and worthy. ' It does sound as if Sabir is directing the quintet through sections of wide-ranging density; things change with an obvious inner-logic. Remarkable results!
