Hemphill, Julius - One Atmosphere

SKU TZ7090
An original member of the legendary Black Artists Group (St. Louis' counterpart to the AACM), and founder of the World Sax Quartet, Julius Hemphill was one of the most important composer/performers in creative music. His work is marked by a sharp, edgy melodicism steeped in the blues, contrapuntal complexity and a striking formal logic. One Atmosphere presents the full range of his compositional talents: a long, epic work for seven woodwinds (one of his greatest compositions, here receiving its premiere recording); a beautiful quintet for piano and strings; and a bluesy tune originally written for his famous trio with Abdul Wadud, here featuring the versatile cellist Erik Friedlander and two of his closest collaborators, Marty Ehrlich and Pheeroan AkLaff.
