Milford Graves – Response (1977)

Tracks on Meditation Among Us by Milford Graves:
A: Together And Moving (19:56) / B: Response (16:04)

Recorded in 1977, Meditation Among Us is the collaboration of American vanguard jazz drummer Milford Graves with a Japanese jazz quartet which included trumpeter Toshinori Kondo, saxophonist Kaoru Abe, drummer Toshi Tsuchitori (who also plays piano on this session), and bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa. There are two long selections here, credited to Graves, but they feel like completely free improvisations. [source]

Milford Graves – Drums, Percussion, Piano, Voice
Mototeru Takagi – Tenor Saxophone
