A 1990 release on Frode Gjerstad's Circulasione label capturing the original Detail quartet ( Gjerstad-sax, John Stevens-drums, Johnny Dyani-bass and Bobby Bradford-cornet) performing live in the UK, an amazing example of this international band's abilities.
 

Detail: Stevens / Bradford / Dyani / Gjerstad
In Time Was

Detail: Stevens / Bradford / Dyani / Gjerstad: In Time Was (Circulasione)
Label: Circulasione    
Released in: Norway    


"There aren't too many quartets whose members were more far-flung than these; cornetist Bobby Bradford hails from Los Angeles, tenor saxophonist Frode Gjerstad from Norway, bassist Johnny Mbizo Dyani from South Africa, and drummer John Stevens from London. Together they formed a free jazz group called Detail, which with this lineup made one tour of England, a double studio album titled Ness for Impetus, and this startling live recording in Cambridge for a Norwegian label.

The entire disc consists of one freely conceived piece in three sections, "In Time Was," yet the progression of events is virtually seamless; your attention will not waver as you follow Detail's fantastic, telepathic interplay out on the fringe. Bradford plays brilliantly throughout, with on-the-button attacks of every note in every free flurry, while Gjerstad is a bit fuzzy in tone and somewhat further out there in conception. Stevens' drumming is crisp and unpredictably volatile, which coupled with Dyani's asymmetrical, staggered, extraordinarily charged-up bass makes for quite a stimulating rhythm engine.

Alas, the amazing Dyani died just days after the alleged date of this recording, which is dedicated to his memory."-Richard S. Ginell, All Music
