Joe Lovano Nonet: Live in Paris, 2001
Catalogue Number: INAK6459
Tenor saxophone great Joe Lovano plays "with a balance of imaginative abandon and technical control that has not been heard since John Coltrane," says Downbeat magazine. Lovano's recordings are consistently at the top of critics' end-of-the-year "Best of" lists (including his Grammy-winning 52nd Street Themes). Touring with his nine-piece ensemble - the previous much celebrated nonet in jazz history was the one Miles Davis formed for his legendary Birth of the Cool - Lovano has found the perfect vehicle in this "little-big band" format, striking a balance between the powerful sound of a large ensemble and the intimacy of the solo-oriented small combo. Each of his Nonet performances at the New Morning - such as this 2001 show featuring the late John Hicks - has been an unforgettable experience for his countless French fans.
