To My Queen (Limited Edition)
Warning: Last items in stock!
One of the most underrated jazz musicians who dared to devote his playing to an underappreciated jazz instrument, the vibraphone, Walt Dickerson Nhad a very personal instrumental and compositional Nstyle.
To My Queen is probably Dickerson’s crowning achievement, a perfect balance between his intellectually advanced concepts and deeply felt passion. Dickerson had always displayed a fertile imagination, but there hadn’t been much indication that his vision could be as expansive as it was on To My Queen.
Never before had he attempted such extended, freely structured performances, which makes the album’s consistency and focus all the more impressive. It features Dickerson in a quartet format, with Andrew Hill on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Andrew Cyrille on drums.
Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, September 21, 1962.
