Jane Bunnett, Stanley Cowell, Dewey Redman: Spirituals and Dedications (2001)

Now that I've rediscovered this record, I'm off to do my homework. You don't know Jane Bunnett either? Shame on us both. Excellent credentials: she studied soprano with Steve Lacy, recorded and toured extensively with Don Pullen, and was way ahead of the curve in bringing Cuban music to North American audiences. Keeps good company, too — Cowell is magnificent on this date. She'd almost certainly be better known if she were male and not Canadian, but the good news is she has health insurance where lots of better-known US musicians don't, so maybe it all comes out in the wash.

Thanks for this. I heartily recommend Bunnett's album "Spirits of Havana" performed with roots musicians in Cuba.

Absolutely killer version of 'illusion suite'..Reminds me of Andy Bey on one of Stanley Clarke's early 70's sessions..Full of that deep feeling..Very moving..Many thanks.

Beautiful, beautiful music! Thanks a lot for the share.

Thanks for sharing this.I agree with the above "Illusion Suite" comment.For a Cowell fan like myself this is very interesting listening.Cool to hear another side of the versatile Dewey Redman. Someone who knows his work with ornette or the impule 70's records or black saint wouldbe hard pressed to identify him here.He sounds great though.Thanks again.

Hi, I just listened to a few of the tracks, this sounds really good ! The flute solo on "Illusion's suite" is incredible.

Thanks for sharing with us such beauty
