A free Andrew Cyrille download

For the past few years, I’ve been swimming in the ocean of hard bop... loving every minute of it. Only recently have I dipped my toe into free jazz.

But I know enough to point you without hesitation to a FREE MP3 from Andrew Cyrille, free-jazz drummer par excellence.

Follow this link to the website for Firehouse 12, a performance space in New Haven, Conn. Scroll down to “Music Samples.” You’ll find the MP3 for “Low Blue Flame.”

On this cut, Cyrille duets with saxophonist Greg Osby. It’s from a 2006 CD (released in Europe) also titled “Low Blue Flame.”

Click here to sample the track on my Vox blog, and see if this type of thing strikes your fancy.

You're welcome. Osby's the pride of St. Louis, I assume. If he ain't, he ought to be.
