Product Description:

Solo performer: Milford Graves (percussion).
Recorded at Avatar Studios, New York, New York on October 11, 1997. Includes liner notes by Milford Graves.
Recording information: Avatar (10/11/1997).
Along with Sunny Murray, Milford Graves is one of the fathers of the '60s "free" school of jazz drumming. Murray and Graves dispensed with the notion of the drummer as "timekeeper" or "accompanist." For the first time, a drummer was on equal stature with a pianist or horn player and was free to improvise along with the instrumentalists.
1997's GRAND UNIFICATION is a solo percussion tour-de-force. Graves utilizes a wide range of drums and percussion, playing freely but dynamically and with a sense of urgent, driving inner logic. His cross-rhythms will make you dizzy with delight. In addition, Graves often vocalizes "behind" the storms and flurries he lays down. The beautifully recorded GRAND UNIFICATION makes most jazz and rock drummers sound like metronomes.
