2-CD DIGISLEEVE EDITION

4 1/2 ALL MUSIC GUIDE

An avant-garde all-star outing featuring the democratic collective of saxophonist Oliver Lake, cornetist Graham Haynes, bassist Joe Fonda and drummer Barry Altschul—the first letters of the first names giving the group its name—Bamako presents a free-end-of-the spectrum sound that breaks new ground while maintaining its grip on a late-fifties/mid-sixties foundation of flexibility. Like alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman's early recordings the music holds sway without a chording instrument, with a sax joined by a cornet to replace the sound of Don Cherry's pocket trumpet.

  • OLIVER LAKE, alto and soprano sax
