Frank Lowe - Fresh

Frank Lowe: tenor saxophone
Lester Bowie: trumpet
Joseph Bowie: trombone
Abdul Wadud: cello
Steve Reid: drums
Charles Bobo Shaw: drums
+ The Memphis Four

The emphasis is on color and sound on this spirited avant-garde album. Four of the five selections feature the adventurous tenor of Frank Lowe with trumpeter Lester Bowie, trombonist Joseph Bowie, cellist Abdul Wadud and either Steve Reid or Bob Shaw on drums. They perform two Lowe originals and two pieces by Thelonious Monk; these renditions are full of surprises and contrasts. In addition, Lowe is heard with an unknown group of local musicians called "the Memphis Four" on "Chu's Blues" in 1974. Open-eared listeners should find this set to be quite stimulating. (from AMG)
