Album: Mark Charig, Pipedream (Ogun)
Sunday 15 August 2010
First time on CD for this 1977 free-jazz album recorded in a Bristol church.
Trumpeter Mark Charig, who plays cornet and tenor horn here, was a member of Keith Tippett's early bands, and it's Tippett on pipe organ, zither, piano, voice and bell, together with the extraordinary voice-as-instrument singer Ann Winter who completes the trio. It's very much of its time, freely improvised, but light and playful, and alert to sonic possibility. The listener may have to be as indulgent as the musicians to really make it work.
