7-CD BOX SET

This seven-disc set in CAM Jazz's Black Saint/Soul Note reissue series (capturing inspired work by African-American jazz avantists finding refuge in Europe in the 1970s and 80s) frequently presents Murray in creative tension with very powerful partners, however – including bassists Fred Hopkins and Reggie Workman, and percussion originals Ed Blackwell, Sunny Murray, and John Coltrane drummer Rashied Ali. However, The Sweet Lonely album of 1979 offers Murray one of his most uncluttered improv spaces (in a trio with Hopkins and drummer Steve McCall, in which the saxist swings with left-field lyricism over Hopkins' stomping walks). There's a beautiful Body and Soul paying devoted tribute to Coleman Hawkins and the brilliantly supportive pianist John Hicks on Morning Song, and a playful bass clarinet account of Jitterbug Waltz which highlights Murray's seismic 1980s shift from free-improv to his own robust take on postbop.
