Esperanto CD – ALEPH 019


A joyous celebration with featured artists from five continents. Straight-ahead jazz, exotic tropical rhythms, contemporary tango, and basic blues. Byron’s clarinet dancing and mesmerizing, Morrison’s trumpet aimed to the highest peaks, Ponty’s swinging finesse on violin, sizzling Indian rhythms from Gurtu, evocative beauty from bandoneon master Marconi, fireworks between synthesist Stockhausen and African drummer Thiam, hard-driving drumming from Hutchinson, rousing, powerful sounds of the WDR Big Band.
