A1 Haitian Heritage Part I
A2 Haitian Heritage Part II
B3 Non-Expectation Celebration
Here is the first record of Andrew Cyrille & Maono, named "Celebration".
In this album, as my the below comments, Andrew shows his earnest desire to pick up various kinds of musical aspects in his interests
at that time. These are prettey wider and of great variety, as compared to a energish and speedy drumer as a member of Cecil Tylor unit.
A1 Haitian Heritage Part I is free form session among hitian drum, trap drum. And vocal of Jeanne Lee and poet reading decorate it.
A2 Haitian Heritage Part II is dancing style tune of ethnical flavor.
B1 Fate is mysterious and sad ballad.
B2 Gossip is typical free jazz tune.
B3 Non-Expectation Celebration of flavor of electric music.
This album is starting point of Andrew as music creator from drumer of outstandingly tough and energish.
And this album is precious too as Donald Smith plays piano. As long as I know, he recorded his piano in just a few albums only.
