John Henry A'Hern & Bryant have done it agaiin! This recording is an 'object lesson' in how to present the Bass instrument, crisp, clear, woody and not lost somewhere in the background - Lloyd's playing is spell binding and the clarity beyond comparison. I like all the tracks but, for me, the Bass on 'Deep Shallow' is the stuff of goosebumps!

The McGann / Alder unison lines are perfect, and the title track an indicatiion of the 'goodies in store; this recording does not disappoint anywhere, anyhow.
Magic! Favorite track: Deep Shallow.

about

In two years since the LIVE AT SIDE ON (rf073) recording the classic mcgann trio turned quartet, with the advent of alder, continues to unfold the promise of this exciting partnership, producing a powerful yet subtle statement.

On BLUES FOR PABLO TOO we have McGann's alto distilled to an even headier essence, the richness of alder's tone and the propulsive partnership of Swanton and pochée.

Beautifully recorded with songs by roger frampton, gai Bryant, alder and mcgann – the title track and ‘Malaga’ were written for the 2003 Sydney festival in conjunction with the picasso exhibition - and the standard 'it's the talk of the town'.

Long awaited, BLUES FOR PABLO TOO is an exciting addition to mcgann’s body of work, while demonstrating the ongoing creative energy of the band.
