Ed Blackwell & Hamiet Bluiett

Another one thanks to my friend Chad Anderson (who always seems to keep me supplied with the good stuff!) Here is the great Edward Blackwell in a three part duet with saxophonist Hamiet Bluiett:

Blackwell has been a huge influence on me for some time and I really admire his playful way of mixing his New Orleans roots along with Max Roach's bebop drumming and West African inspired rhythms.

If you like these ones, then check out his duo work with Don Cherry on "El Corazon" and Dewey Redman on "Live in Willisau" as well.
