Greene, Burton - Bloom in the Commune

SKU 05-ESP4038
Also known as "Burton Greene Quartet".
"Reissue of the 1st Burton Greene album on ESP-Disk, recorded 12/18/65. New title, new cover art, with approx 20 minutes of audio interviews with the artist (& Bernard Stollman). Featuring Burton Greene (piano, piano harp, percussion), Marion Brown (alto saxophone), Henry Grimes (bass), Dave Grant (percussion), Frank Smith (tenor), Tom Price (percussion)."

"A typical ESP blowout, this CD reissue has the only recording of tenor saxophonist Frank Smith (who sounds quite intense during his lone appearance on "Taking It Out of the Ground") and features strong playing from pianist Burton Greene, long-lost bassist Henry Grimes, and either Dave Grant or Tom Price on drums. However, this set's main value is the improvising of altoist Marion Brown, who manages to sound both lyrical and very exploratory on the four Greene originals. Invigorating music from the free-jazz era."-Scott Yanow/All Music Guide
