MAL WALDRON QUARTET
Paris 2002 [no label, 1CD]

Festival Banlieues Bleues. Live at Seine-Saint-Denis, Paris, France; April 5, 2002. Very good FM broadcast.

Adam Shatz, thenation.com:

Mal Waldron’s style is invariably described as “brooding” - almost all of his pieces are in a minor key - but it could also be described as analytical. Most jazz pianists work to create an effect of outward motion when they improvise. Swing, after all, is a musical analogue of dance, and its aim is to make the body more expansive and supple. Waldron’s music appears to work in nearly the opposite direction, burrowing ever more deeply into its materials: He seems to be on an inward journey.
