Bradford, Bobby-John Carter Quintet
Comin' On

Bradford, Bobby-John Carter Quintet: Comin' On (hatOLOGY)
Label: hatOLOGY    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Originally on hatART 6016 from 1991. Though revolutionary for its time, the group's music does not betray its age; the musical syntax is not so unfamiliar now - our ears have grown over time to meet it on common ground - and its values have proven time-tested and substantial. All of which combine to make Carter and Bradford's recorded reunion, here, from 1988, an Event."-Art Lange, 2011

"Clarinetist John Carter and cornetist Bobby Bradford teamed up many times during a 25-year period. Nearly all of their joint recordings were issued under Carter's name, but this CD is an exception. Carter's often intense flights on clarinet served as a contrast to Bradford's mellower sound. What is unusual about this set, which also includes bassist Richard Davis and drummer Andrew Cyrille, is the participation of pianist Don Preston, who often doubles on synthesizer. His synth adds some otherworldly sounds on several of the selections (such as "Encounter") and takes some getting used to. Bradford contributed two of the pieces, while Carter brought in three, including "Sunday Afternoon Jazz Society Blues." The music is advanced, but not as forbidding as it sometimes was from Carter and Bradford, making this one of their more accessible releases."-Scott Yanow, All Music
