Clarence Penn, DALI IN COBBLE HILL

Clarence Penn -][- Dali In Cobble Hill -[Criss Cross, 2012]-

On his long-awaited follow-up to his critically lauded 1996 Criss Cross debut, Penn’s Landing, and the equally powerful Play-Penn, from 2001, master drummer-percussionist Clarence Penn presents Dali in Cobble Hill, a meditation on how the iconic Surrealist painter might have digested a stroll through Penn’s Brooklyn neighborhood.

The eight originals and two standards incorporate a variety of moods, flavors, and strategies that reflect Penn’s extensive activity as a sideman for jazz’ best-and-brightest over the past decades; his ensemble of grand master generational contemporaries Chris Potter on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Adam Rogers on guitar, and Ben Street on bass inhabit the stories, playing with deep imagination and virtuosic craft. -[Editorial Review | Amazon]-
