Recording Info

Recorded at the Velvet Lounge, Chicago, IL, June 1, 1998

Produced by: Fred Anderson & Peter Kowald
Executive Producer: Bruno Johnson
Recorded & mixed by: Steve Mezger

OkkaDisk continues to demonstrate that Chicago has seized the initiative in channeling energy into the creation of meaningful jazz. Importantly, it acknowledges the continuing contribution of veterans such as Joe McPhee and, in this instance, saxophonist Fred Anderson. Now 70, Anderson’s profile has remained lower than those of other founding members of the AACM, but on this set, recorded last year at the club he runs to make ends meet, his gnarly playing still grips the attention with its muscle and urgency. He flourishes in the best of company: percussionist Hamid Drake and bassist Peter Kowald. The outcome is musicianship that matters.

- The Wire, July 1999
