For today's "Saturday The Fringes" series, we've got an avant-fusion work from guitarist Mark O'Leary. At times veering into Terje Rypdal ECM-like soundscapes and at times into free-jazz improv straight from the furnace, O'Leary is never boring and always has something to say. Uygan's trumpet shines on this piece.
I love jazz because I enjoy the freedom.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was 17.
I met Cedar Walton at a concert in San Paulo.
The best show I ever attended was Helio Jambao trio.
The first jazz record I bought was Witchcraft by George Benson.
My advice to new listeners is listen to the old school first.
