SLAMCD 294. BARCODE 5028386029427
Jim Dvorak trumpet, voice; Paul Dunmall tenor sax, saxello; Chris Mapp bass; Mark Sanders Drums.
Jim Dvorak and Paul Dunmall were two of the earliest SLAM recording artists after the label was founded 25 years ago; Mark Sanders has also appeared on several previous SLAM releases, notably with Elton Dean, Nick Evans and of course Paul Dunmall. Bassist Chris Mapp is a new and very welcome name on the label.
The music, with the exception of track 7, was written by Dvorak whose composition style reflects the influence of Charles Mingus. Interesting that one of Dvorak's early SLAM releases was his duo with Eric Mingus. The two horns show a synergy that comes from the years of association and mutual respect; Dvorak's vocals add the drama.
