1990 Album Reissued on Vinyl LP!
Jazz Supergroup Featuring Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden & Ed Blackwell!

This was Old and New Dreams, a legendary quartet and possibly one the most important lineups in the post-Ornette Coleman continuum! Recorded live in Atlanta in 1987 and first released in 1990, their second Black Saint release stands as the group final statement. A high-quality recording capturing an outstanding performance as homage to Ed Blackwell, one of the greatest drummers in the history of jazz. A strong and sensitive musician who managed to integrate the New Orleans rhythm tradition with the propulsive drive of free jazz. This was an amazing concert based on a great setlist including three Coleman's originals "Happy House," "Law Years," and "Street Woman," plus Blackwell's "Togo" and Dewey Redman's "Dewey's Tune."

All of the musicians are in top form on this no-changes music, creating fresh and intuitive melodies with both freedom and hints of the tradition.
-Scott Yanow,, 4/5 stars
