Don Pullen/George Adams: Melodic Excursions

Album Notes

This is the George Adams-Don Pullen group pared to the bone -- just the two of them. It works well, not only because of the great talent involved, but because there are no vocals or commercial concessions, and, more importantly, because there's a certain intuitive feel between Pullen and Adams that is the result of numerous performances together. From the opening "The Calling," there is something special in the air. The two dig in without distraction, playing hard and fast. Elsewhere, these mostly original tunes (the exception is the gorgeous spiritual "God Has Smiled on Me") are true to the title, exuding oodles of melody. Both Pullen and Adams fans should be satisfied with this effort, as each performer shines. While the recording may sometimes lack the seriousness that some might prefer from these giants of the genre, it's clearly one of their best group efforts. ~ Steven Loewy
