EUROPEAN ENCOUNTERS (CD)

JOHN LEWIS

8,26 €

2 LPs ON 1 CD EDITION

This release contains two unusual John Lewis albums in their entirety. Both LPs feature the pianist and composer accompanied by European jazz stars. European Encounter (Atlantic LP1392) showcases Lewis with Danish violinist Svend Asmussen, while Animal Dance (Atlantic LP1402) is a collaboration between the pianist and German trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff. Lewis would never record again with either of them. The last track of Animal Dance features The Zagreb Jazz Quartet, a European group modeled after John Lewis' Modern Jazz Quartet
