From 1966, ‘Dusk Fire’ sees the saxophonist/ trumpeter’s quintet in fine fettle. The driving Eastern flavoured ‘Tan Samfu’ is a modal speciality, sounding not unlike early 60’s Blue Note. Add the fiery ‘Hot Rod’ and the masterful 12- minute opus ‘Dusk Fire’ and there are numerous highlights to this set. The lovely ballad ‘Ruth’ and the mesmerising ‘Jubal’ add different mellow moods, whereas ‘Spooks’ gives a touch of the avant-garde.
