Tenor saxophonist Charles Brackeen's 3rd Silkheart release in a passionate free jazz album with his quartet of cornetist Olu Dara, bassist Fred Hopkins, and drummer Andrew Cyrille.

Brackeen, Charles Quartet,
Worshippers Come Nigh

Brackeen, Charles Quartet,: Worshippers Come Nigh (Silkheart)
Label: Silkheart    
Released in: Sweden    

"Tenorman Charles Brackeen's third of three Silkheart CDs (recorded at the same session as Attainment) matches his powerful playing with cornetist Olu Dara, bassist Fred Hopkins, and drummer Andrew Cyrille. All of the Silkheart sets are worth picking up, but this one (due to its extra intensity and the five particularly strong Brackeen originals) gets a slight edge. Brackeen's passionate playing shows that free jazz was still very much alive (if underground) in the 1980s."-Scott Yanow
