Henry Grimes Trio – The Call

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“The mysterious bassist Henry Grimes, who disappeared altogether in 1967, only led this one recording session; it has been reissued on CD. Although Grimes played in a wide variety of settings in the late 1950s, he was working exclusively in the avant-garde by 1965. Teamed with clarinetist Perry Robinson in one of his earliest recordings and the obscure drummer Tom Price, Grimes gets a fair amount of solo space on these six group originals. However, it is for Robinson’s playing that the adventurous but not overly memorable disc is chiefly recommended.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic .
