Son muchos los fans del pionero del free-jazz Ornette Coleman. Tras su estela se han grabado ya unos cuantos álbumes en su nombre. Pero ahora hacía ya tiempo que los acordes y desacordes de esta favorecedora música no sonaban en un estudio de grabación. El baterista Todd Bishop pone en alerta a sus más afines colaboradores, para adentrarse en la oscuridad de las melodías de Coleman. Como buenos fans del rey del free jazz, los componentes de Todd Bishop Group, interpretan con elegancia los diferentes temas que componen este álbum, bautizado como ?Little Played Little Bird?. La interpretación del free-jazz en ocasiones crea controversia, sin embargo en esta grabación sus ejecutantes combinan diferentes instrumentos de viento-madera, dándole un toque sinfónico y variado. El soplador Richard Cole se llevó al estudio unos cuantos arcaduces agujereados; un clarinete bajo, un saxo barítono, un tenor y un soprano. Tim Willcox, también bufaba un saxo tenor y un soprano. Al contrabajo Bill Athens, y al batería el líder del grupo, Todd Bishop. Cuesta recomendar un álbum de este caprichoso estilo de jazz, pero me atrevería a afirmar que los amantes del género y seguidores de Ornette Coleman, encontrarán en ?Little Played Little Bird? una muy buena fuente de inspiración. El entretenimiento está asegurado.

And a rough translation....

There are many fans of the pioneer of free-jazz, Ornette Coleman. After their wake a few albums in their name have been recorded already. But it's been a long time since the conflicting chords of this enhancing music were heard in a recording studio. The drummer Todd Bishop puts on alert his compatible collaborators, to enter itself in the dark of the melodies of Coleman. Like good fans of the king of free jazz, the components of Todd Bishop's Group, elegantly interpret the various issues that make this album, dubbed "Little Played Little Bird." The interpretation of free-jazz sometimes creates controversy, nevertheless in this recording its executants combine different woodwind instruments, giving it a symphonic and variable touch. Richard Cole performs on bass clarinet, and baritone, soprano and tenor saxophones. Tim Willcox, also plays tenor and soprano saxes. Bill Athens on bass, and the drummer is the group's leader, Todd Bishop. Cuesta to recommend an album of this capricious style of jazz, but I would say that the lovers of the genre and followers of Ornette Coleman will find in ?Little Played Little Bird? a very good source of inspiration. The entertainment is assured.
