The last recording of the trio of saxophonist and flutist Paul Dunmall, guitarist Phill Gibbs, and the late drummer Tony Marsh, a fitting tribute to the great drummer's long association with Dunmall and Gibbs.
Marsh, Tony / Paul Dunmall / Phill Gibbs
For The Last Time
Released in: Great Britain
One of the most musical drummers that ever was. His use of space brilliant touch dynamics and most of all his total concentration.
"He always seemed in control and somehow made it look effortless but I know he was really working hard to make the music special.
His life was music until the very end.
Everybody loved playing with him, he always gave everything and expected the same from whoever he played with.
The night before this recording we played a duet gig in Oxford. He had this new rack of small cymbals that he was very enthusiastic about and was saying this was to become a permanent feature of his kit.
He was always looking for new discoveries. It was Phil's idea 6 months before to record the trio again, we hadn't recorded for 10 years and I'm so glad he suggested it because this was the last time I played with Tony. We had played toegher for over 30 years, just like my other dear friend and master drummer Tony Levin. Now that both of them have passed away it has left a big hole in my musical life that can neve be filled.
Of course we move on but friends made over a lifetime are irreplaceable. Something precious that is lost but we can stil hear them at their best playing the drums. Listen to the great Tony Marsh here, he passed away just a couple of months after this recording.
Peace and Joy... "-Paul Dunmall
