Don Pullen / George Adams Quartet

Breakthrough
Sealed 1986 Original Pressed On Premium Quality Virgin Vinyl. Clean Cut Out Hole. “Yes, This Is A Career Breakthrough In A Sense, For The Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet Finally Got A Chance To Record For A Major American Label After Several Europe-Only Opuses. They Seemed Genuinely Thrilled About It, For The Supercharged Leadoff Track "Mr. Smoothie" Sure Sounds Like A Breakthrough With Its Ebullient Mood. While Grounded In Hard-Swinging Post-Bop, Soul-Jazz, And The Blues, Adams And Pullen Use The Mainstream As A Base For Taking Off Into Free Regions At Times, Adams With His Gritty, Combustible Tenor, Pullen His Trademark Piano Clusters. They Can Also Groove In A Melodic Yet Highly Charged Fashion On "Song From The Old Country" And Reflect Yearningly In The Opening Bars Of "A Time For Sobriety." Drummer Dannie Richmond Adds His Mingus-Trained Flexibility And Drive, Fluidly Teamed With Bassist Cameron Brown. Throughout The Record, The Band's Creativity Burns At White Heat, Making This Disc A Good First Choice For Newcomers To Pullen.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.
