Blasé (180 Gram)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Blasé looks back to the blues, soaked in harmonica and the brooding duet of Shepp's throaty tenor and Jeanne Lee's magnificent, pensive voice. The mood is dark, but proud and unyielding. This is the sound of those who have been wounded, those who will rise yet again. The overall effect is like some wonderful, alternate version of Porgy & Bess, an expression of hope and dignity where few would bother to look.
Recorded, August 16, 1969, Paris
