Todd Bishop GROUP -][- LITTLE PLAYED LITTLE BIRD –Mp3– [Origin Records, 2012] –
“Freewheeling and solid.” —C. MICHAEL BAILEY, ALL ABOUT JAZZ
All About Jazz referred to Todd Bishop’s Serge Gainsbourg tribute, “69 Annee Erotique,” as “…beautiful decadence, brilliant and bright.” Here, he features a set of rarely heard gems from Ornette Coleman’s catalog on his latest in a series paying respect to some of the music world’s more iconic and intriguing figures.
In this free-spirited session, they cover compositions such as “Friends And Neighbors,” “Comme Il Faut,” “Country Town Blues,” along with a beautifully unraveling, and unavoidable, take of the classic “Lonely Woman,” drummer Bishop is joined by the brilliant Brazilian pianist Weber Iago, bassist Bill Athens, and a frontline of Richard Cole and Tim Willcox, each playing multiple woodwinds except the alto saxophone. -[Origin Arts]-
