A Darker Shade Of Blue
Review by Scott Yanow:
Tenor saxophonist Chico Freeman’s second recording as a leader (the first was an obscurity for Dharma in 1975) was originally cut for the Japanese Trio label before being made available domestically by India Navigation. An impressive effort, the adventurous music (five compositions by Freeman) features the leader on tenor, soprano, flute and pan-pipe, Henry Threadgill (switching between alto, baritone and flute), pianist Muhal Richard Abrams, bassist Cecil McBee (in the first of his many collaborations with Freeman), flutist Douglas Ewart, and the percussion of Steve McCall and Ben Montgomery. The performances are unpredictable yet logical inside/outside music

This is another album from my records collection that our generous Anonymous contributor had provided me with a rip from his own album. So many thanks to him!
Also many thanks to Tim who helped me overcome my scanner’s inability to scan a complete LP cover. Tim applied his “magic” to create complete front and back LP’ covers.
