On August 4th ECM released Brewster's Rooster a powerful, exciting, real jazz" album, from the great British horn-player John Surman. Soulful ballads, hard-driving pieces and fiery improvisations show Surman at the top of his creative form on baritone and soprano saxophones, surrounded by an all-star cast featuring John Abercrombie, Drew Gress and Jack DeJohnette.
Surman, making a rare US appearance, will perform with this quartet later in the month.
