Teo Macero ‎– Acoustical Suspension (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Teo Macero, best known as a producer, has only recorded as a tenor-saxophonist on a very infrequent basis through the decades. This unusual album has four very different groups performing Macero’s originals. Vibraphonist Lionel Hampton and tenor-saxophonist Gato Barbieri (an odd couple) are heard on five numbers along with a saxophone section, two keyboards, two guitars and a rhythm section. “Summer Rain” matches together flutist Dave Valentin and soprano-saxpohonist Dave Liebman while “Silent Summer” is a piano duet for Mike Nock and Mal Waldron. Macero only pops up on one number, teaming up with Liebman, altoist Carlos Ward, bassist Cecil McBee and Orlando Digirolamo on accordian; quite a quintet. In general the writing is not as strong as the solos but this somewhat eccentric album certainly stands out in the crowd.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
