Mal Waldron: The Quest (CD: New Jazz/ Fantasy- US Import)Mal Waldron: The Quest (CD: New Jazz/ Fantasy- US Import)
Pitting an urgent Booker Ervin up against a fiery Dolphy, The Quest is an outstanding inside-out album, full of contrasts and intriguing colours- Dolphy's regular clarinet on 'Warm Canto' for instance (ignore the less-than-perfect intonation of Ron Carter's cello scraping however). The bustling conflict of 'Status Seeking', where the Texan's shouting tenor is almost blown away by Dolphy's convoluted alto, is an incredible piece overflowing with the tensions and struggles of urban living. Waldron's unique style, owing much to Bud and Monk, has rarely sounded as purposeful as this. A New Jazz classic.

Mal Waldron Trio: Impressions (CD: New Jazz- US Import)
In his first three albums for Prestige, Mal Waldron utilized horns to present his ideas. Then he switched to a trio format. Impressions is the second of these and shows off both his playing and composing abilities. On the writing side, three related pieces entitled Overseas Suite are presented here, although they are not in consecutive order. Among the standards, “All the Way” came out of Billie Holiday’s liking for Frank Sinatra’s recording of the song. Waldron was Holiday’s accompanist at the time and, in fact, wrote Overseas Suite after returning from a European tour with Lady in 1958. Today Waldron is a global traveler with an enthusiastic following in Japan and Europe, as well as in the United States, where he has once again begun to make more frequent appearances since the Eighties. Impressions represents the beginning of that internationalism and, if you will, universality. (Fantasy, Inc.)
